Harry Yeide is already familiar to historians of US armored forces. Mr. Yeide's earlier books "The Tank Killers" and "Steel Victory" have been highly rated by military historians. This time he gives a general overview of the equipment and organization of US Army armored units of WW2. There are sections on the growth of the Armored Force and how the organizations evolved to meet tactical needs or battlefield lessons. He also covers the controversy about why American tanks didn't have big "tank killer" guns like their German counterparts. Yeide covers some of the lesser appreciated topics, such as the radios that were increasingly plentiful on the WW2 battlefield and led to better command and coordination of Allied units. Each class of tank receives its own section with appropriate commentary on its development and use. Coverage is also given to support vehicles like assault guns and to the little know "secret weapons" like mine destroyers and the ultra-secret night combat searchlight program.

This is NOT an in-depth technical description of a tank, but rather an excellent view of the tanks and how they fit into the team that helped beat the German Army.

The price is VERY reasonable, especially with the color photos and amount of good information involved. Anyone interested in the history of the US Army, armored forces or WW2 in Europe should have a copy of this book.

Nothing in-depth, but a handy overview of US armored vehicles used in the Second World War. The book is heavily illustrated and relatively inexpensive, and will fill some gaps for those whose libraries on the topic are limited. Yeide is better than most authors at correctly identifying most US tanks by their type and subtype, so the captions are mostly reliable. However, he repeats the widespread fallacy that only twenty M26 Pershing heavy tanks were sent to Europe. In fact, after that first batch of twenty arrived in February, 1945, deliveries continued through VE Day, and about 300 were delivered, of which 250 were issued to front line units.
For books dealing with these subjects in greater depth, look for titles by Steven Zaloga, Bruce Culver or R. P. Hunnicutt.

I found this book very well written as a source or reference book. It is not too long but covers a wide depth on the various US armor vehicles used during World War Two. The book also covers US Army doctrine, concept, training, support vehicles, and equipment used by the Armored divisions. It's a good book to use in conjunction with other books on US armor and has some interesting pictures showing development of a number of tanks as well as interior of the tanks. Good book if you are a armor buff and wanting to add to your collection on US tanks.

Tank fans will want to latch on to Harry Yeide's latest book. Yeide, author of a number of armor books including the excellent STEEL VICTORY, here offers up a fast-paced, well-illustrated introduction to U.S. armor developments in World War II.

After a brief history of American armored battalions, Yeide takes a chapter-by-chapter look at U.S. light tanks, mediums, amphibious models, special variants like tank dozers and mine clearers, tank crews and supporting elements like half-tracks, jeeps, etc. Along with giving a nuts-and-bolts guide to U.S. armor, Yeide also discusses armored controversies like the tank vs. tank destroyer doctrine, the inadequate performance of the Sherman's gun against German panzers, etc. Brief combat accounts enhance Yeide's narrative.

To say the book is well-illustrated is an understatement; there are over 250 black & white and color photos and diagrams of crews, vehicles and combat scenes in the book. At $24.95 WEAPONS OF THE TANKERS is great value for the price.

In short, Yeide's book delivers the goods. If you like all things armored, you'll enjoy this book!
Mightdragon
This is an exceptionally good photo chronicle of the tanks the United States entered WWII with and the heavier machines it produced to counter the German panzers they encountered. There is particularly good photo content of early light tank development, early Sherman variations, and some great color photos as well. For the money, you simply cannot ask for a better book on this subject. This one will entertain and educate history enthusiasts and model builders alike.
