ISRAELI SHERMANS

By Tom Gannon

(Subject: Land Vehicles & Weapons - General) This is a much expanded and updated edition of the author’s original Israeli Sherman, published in 2001 and long out-of-print. Following a general description of the basic M4 series, the humble beginning of the very first Sherman in service in 1948 is covered in detail. Hundreds of black-and-white photographs trace the evolution of Israel’s Shermans from cobbled-together veterans of the Second World War into some of the most lethal variants of the series ever conceived. There is also coverage of specialised vehicles, such as ARVs, dozers and mine clearing vehicles. The various types used in the War of Independence, the 1956 Sinai Campaign, the Six-Day War and the Yom Kippur War are all covered in depth. There are also a few never-before-published photographs of the unique APC developed by Lebanese engineers and used by the South Lebanon Army. Model builders will appreciate the detailed close-up colour images of Israeli Shermans (Published: 2017) (Publisher: Barbarossa Books) (ISBN: 9781847680235) (Pagination: 406pp 372 colour & 375 b/w photos & illustrations) (Condition: new in illustrated boards) UL-XXXXXX
