US Tank Battles in France 1944-45 (Armor At War Series) by Steven J. Zaloga, 72 pages (World War 2 History Reference Non-Fiction)
A very rare specialised pictorial book pertaining to the subject on hand. Hard to get now and expensive if you can find one in good condition as this. A great book for the avid war enthusiast who have gone through all the wordy narratives of war books and knows everything there is about the wars that were fought, the equipment used, their specs and now, just want to sit back, relax and look at pictures. This book does just that... a vast collection of photos by private and army journalist released for public viewing, providing an insight of the different tanks, odd variants, how they were deployed, the camo, the desperate situations, the soldiers manning these armored vehicles, the ammo placement, the terrain they are used in, the supporting vehicles, the action shots and damage sustained. It is jam packed with page after page of rare photos that are both carefully selected and properly captioned. These photos are so rare and in such great quality, you would not have seen them around, compared to most other contemporary war books that you may have read that keep regurgitating and re-using all the photos that other books have already used before. This book is also a great reference for modellers to learn and provide ideas based on real life photos about how to weather their models, the markings on the models and what they mean, deployment stance, damage pictures, how to camo, terrain features, painting that will be useful when planning for a diorama with many ideas that can be reaped from the many dynamic war time environments showcased in its raw footage.
