About The Author
-

An avid military vehicle enthusiast whose collection includes 10 Vietnam-era vehicles, it not surprising that most of his 100+ published books focus on US military vehicles. In June 2015, he was presented the coveted Bart Vanderveen Award by the Military Vehicle Preservation Association, given in recognition of "…the individual who has contributed the most to the historic preservation of military vehicles worldwide."

REVIEWS
-

"Great photos and abundant design and production details make for an interesting study of an early-war US tank that also saw service in British, Australian, and Soviet armies. It's an armor buff's dream."

- Historical Miniatures Gaming Society

"I wholeheartedly recommend this book for any members interested in the M3 tanks. As a modeler, I don't think this book has any rivals."

- IPMS/USA

"...THE reference to have on the M3. The range of coverage and use of large, clear, photos only enhances what is already a superb history of the type."

‘’Recommended for the amateur historian, vehicle restorer and model-maker.’’

- MAFVA

‘’In total there are 870 illustrations, so you will get plenty of visual info about this famous tank. I like the fact that these photos show whole tank from inside out. High-quality book. In one publication you will get interesting photos and plenty of technical info. Such book will be useful not only for modelers, but also for all WW2 history fans. I recommend to get it while there are books available because such titles don't come out too often. I hope author will continue this series.’’
