Sherman - A History of the American Medium Tank

In this book R. P. Hunnicutt provides the comprehensive history of the technological evolution that led to the production of Sherman M4 in 1942 and its development, variants, and modifications.
Although the Sherman was part of the US pre-war development program, its adaptability to conditions on the front led to extensive British innovations drawn from battle experience.

As WWII raged on, these modifications transformed the Sherman into a highly specialized workhorse of the Anglo-American armored forces. Taking full advantage of the ease with which the Sherman absorbed modifications, British forces adapted Shermans as minesweepers, amphibious assault float tanks, bulldozers, flame throwers, CDL tanks for nighttime attacks, carriages for tank destroyers and self-propelled artillery, among other uses.

The Sherman, the epitome of American prowess in mass production, played an integral role in infantry support and fought in every major theater of operation in WWII. Due to its reliability, adaptability, and sheer strength in numbers, the Sherman M4 served with unmatched longevity, and Hunnicutt touches upon the wide range of combat conditions that the M4 performed under, in addition to its post-WWII activity.

Featuring over a thousand photos from the National Archives, diagrams, and detailed specifications, Hunnicutt's Sherman remains the definitive history of M4 for the military historian, professional soldier, and tank restorer.

Char Sherman - Toutes les variantes du M4 depuis 1941

Les études du char moyen américain M4 "Sherman" débutent en 1941. Malgré une conception assez sommaire et dépourvue de la puissance de feu et de l'épaisse cuirasse des chars allemands, le Sherman a l'avantage d'être plus simple à fabriquer, fiable et facile à entretenir.
Avec 49.500 exemplaires produits, il est numériquement plus important que les Tiger et les Panther allemands.

Au cours de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, les Sherman ont servi dans l'US Army et l'US Marine Corps, l'armée britannique et les armées du Commonwealth, de l'URSS et de la France libre, du gouvernement polonais en exil, du Brésil et de la Chine.
Nombre d'entre eux ont servi encore pendant des décennies après la fin du conflit, notamment lors des combats de la guerre indo-pakistanaise de 1965, et dans l'Armée de défense d'Israël durant la guerre des Six Jours en 1967 et celle du Kippour en 1973.

Le texte fournit une description détaillée de ce que cache le blindage de ce célèbre char de combat. Il rapporte le vécu de ceux qui l'ont utilisé au combat ainsi que les expériences des actuels collectionneurs ou passionnés au sujet de son entretien et de son pilotage.

M4 Sherman - Entwicklung, Technik, Einsatz

Benannt nach einem berühmt-berüchtigten Unions-General im amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg, war der Kampfpanzer Sherman M4 den stärksten deutschen Konkurrenten gegen Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges eigentlich in vielerlei Hinsicht unterlegen.

Doch in der Praxis bewährte sich dieser berühmteste, vielseitigste und am meisten gebaute US-Panzer, sodass er sogar noch nach Kriegsende in über 30 Staaten Verwendung fand - teilweise bis über das Jahr 2000 hinaus!

Pat Ware erzählt in diesem Band nicht nur die Entwicklungs- und Einsatzgeschichte des Sherman M4, sondern erklärt auch alle seine wichtigen Ausführungen.

La saga du Sherman

Bien au-delà de la simple narration, l'ouvrage La saga du Sherman s'articule autour d'un tank mais se décompose en plusieurs facettes. Didactique, informel, historique et pragmatique, il met en avant le rôle et les difficultés des équipages qui ont servi ce char mythique.

Les écueils techniques et les solutions trouvées par les concepteurs sont expliquées, les différentes méthodes de combat mises au point par les alliés sont détaillées, qu'il s'agisse d'un débarquement depuis un L.C.T, une progression dans le bocage, une bataille dans la neige ou une panne au fond d'un trou de boue.

Construire un char le meilleur soit-il n'est pas un gage de victoire. Encore faut-il que l'équipage qui le serve soit instruit et formé ; c'est là que se trouve le début de la réussite. Il faut ensuite " préparer " cet équipage à vivre des situations de combat, lui inculquer que l'erreur en temps de guerre se paie " cash ", et que l'addition rappelle souvent la Camarde.

L'ouvrage, non seulement évoque ces situations, mais liste de façon exhaustive les équipements, les motorisations, les modèles engendrés et les nombreux types de Sherman. Chaque fois que nécessaire, les explications techniques sont claires et précises de sorte que pour le lecteur, la chose devient une évidence.

Complet ? Mieux que cela ! Ce livre traite de la réparation et du maintien en condition, tandis que toute la logistique nécessaire au combat est expliquée.
Collectionneur, passionné d'histoire militaire, inconditionnel de l'engin blindé ou maquettiste, en lisant cet ouvrage vous aurez le sentiment de faire partie de l'équipage, et le meilleur du " Sherman " est à consommer dans ces pages.

M4 Sherman Medium Tank - Technical Manual (TM 9-759)

The M4 Sherman medium tank was the first American tank to carry a 75mm main gun mounted on a fully traversing turret. Powered by a 500 horsepower, liquid-cooled, "V"-type Ford engine, the tank could achieve 26 miles per hour on a paved road, and had a highway range of over 150 miles on a single, 174-gallon tank of fuel. Over 50,000 Shermans of various types were built during WWII.

Intended as a manual for those charged with operation and maintenance of the M4A3 Sherman, this technical manual TM 9-759 shows the basics of how to drive the tank and take care of its 8-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine. The book also contains chapters on lubrication and inspections.
Originally printed in 1942 and labeled restricted, this manual was declassified long ago and is here reprinted in book form. Care has been taken to preserve the integrity of the text.

Sherman Tank (Vol. 1) - America's M4A1 Medium Tank in World War II (Legends of Warfare)

This book documents the development and production of the M4A1 through its many variations, as well as its combat use around the globe. Produced by Lima Locomotive Works, Pressed Steel Car Company, and Pacific Car and Foundry, the M4A1 was the first of the famed Sherman tanks and preceded the welded-hull M4 into production.
Powered by a nine-cylinder, air-cooled radial engine, the M4A1 fought in North Africa with both US and British forces, across northwestern Europe, and on Pacific Islands with both the Army and the Marines, serving well into the 1950s.

The evolving design went through three major hull designs, multiple turret designs, and armament with either a 75 mm or 76 mm gun-all of which are detailed in this book. Extensive archival photographs are augmented by stunning color images of preserved tanks, taking the reader around and inside this famed warhorse. Part of the Legends of Warfare series.

Sherman Tank (Vol. 2) - America's M4 and M4 (105) Medium Tanks in World War II (Legends of Warfare)

Volume 2 on the famed Sherman medium tank covers the welded-hull, radial-engine-equipped M4 and documents its development and production through its many variations, as well as its combat use around the globe.

Produced by Chrysler, Pressed Steel Car Company, Alco, Pullman-Standard, and Baldwin Locomotive Works, the M4 bore the brunt of fighting until late summer 1944, when the M4A3 began to become available in quantity. Powered by a 9-cylinder air-cooled radial engine, the M4 fought in North Africa both with US and British forces, across northwestern Europe, and leapfrogged across the Pacific islands both with the Army and Marines.
The evolving design went through three major hull designs, multiple turret designs, and armament with either a 75 mm gun or a 105 mm weapon-all of which are detailed. Part of the Legends of Warfare series.

Sherman Tank (Vol. 3) - America's M4A2 Medium Tank in World War II (Legends of Warfare)

Powered by twin General Motors diesel engines, the M4A2 Sherman was the standard tank of the US Marine Corps during WWII. In such service, having a common fuel with many of the landing craft simplified logistics. The M4A2 was also supplied in large numbers to Russia as well as the British. The M4A2 was used in some of the most severe tank combat of the war, both on Pacific islands and on the Eastern Front.

This book chronicles the development and use of these vehicles from concept to combat. Through dozens of archival photos, many never before published, as well as detailed photographs of some of the finest existent examples of surviving vehicles, these iconic armored fighting vehicles are explored, and their history is explained.

Sherman Tank (Vol. 4) - The M4A3 Medium Tank in World War II and Korea (Legends of Warfare)

Powered by a massive Ford V-8 engine, the M4A3 Sherman was the standard tank of the US Army during the later stages of WWII, as well as the Korean War. The M4A3 was also supplied to the Marines during WWII, when the Corps faced a shortage of their preferred M4A2.

Sherman Tank (Vol. 6) - M32 and M74-Series Sherman-Based Recovery Vehicles (Legends of Warfare)

The United States, being at peace, had not foreseen the need for a specialized tank recovery vehicle, despite the ramping up of tank production in 1940-1941. However, observation of the new world war quickly pointed to the need for such a vehicle. Armored vehicles, immobilized for any reason, were easily destroyed by opposing troops, denying the possibility for recovery and repair or even the salvaging of parts after the battle.

This book chronicles the development and use of the US and British military Sherman tanks used as armored recovery vehicles.

USMC M4A2 Sherman vs Japanese Type 95 Ha-Go - The Central Pacific 1943-44 (Osprey)

The different national tank doctrines of the United States and Imperial Japan resulted in a terrible mismatch of the predominant tank types in the crucial Central Pacific campaign. A flawed Japanese doctrine emphasized light infantry support tanks, often used in small numbers. Tactically, tanks were often frittered away in armored versions of the familiar banzai attacks.

Meanwhile, the Americans saw the tank as an infantry support weapon, but developed a more systematic tactical doctrine. They settled upon a larger medium tank - in the case of most Marine Corps tank battalions, the diesel-powered M4A2 (unwanted by the US Army).

This superbly detailed title reveals how both the two sides' tactical and technical differences in the approach to armored warfare soon became apparent over a series of deadly engagements, from the first tank fight at the battle of Tarawa in November 1943, through to engagements on Parry Island, Saipan, and Guam, before ending with Peleliu in September 1944.

M4 Sherman Tank (Amberley Armour 1)

Once described as the 'worst tank that ever won the war', the Sherman was never going to be the equal of the German heavies in a direct tank-on-tank confrontation. But it was tough, reliable and built in such prodigious quantities that it became a war winner.

The Sherman came in many variants, and was converted for other uses by the Allies. The Brits gave it a bigger gun, made 'funnies' that could wade through water, build bridges, clear minefields and even spitfire. The Sherman lasted in service into Korea with the Americans and many were sold overseas to Israel, Uganda, India, Paraguay, Argentina and Mexico, with the last in service in Chile.

John Christopher tells the story of the M4 Sherman, using both new and archive images to show the most famous tank in the world in all its guises and variants.

Sherman Medium Tank 1942-45 (Osprey)

The M4 Sherman tank was the mainstay of the Western allies between 1942 and 1945. Fast and modern it was better than most of the tanks Britain had to offer. The American Chief of Staff claimed in November 1943 that it had been hailed widely as ‘the best tank on the battlefield today'. However, by the time of the Normandy invasion of June 1944 this was not the case. The new heavy tanks being produced by the Germans were able to outclass the Sherman in both armour and armament.

This title describes the development and operational use of the Sherman medium tank throughout World War II and beyond.

M4 (76mm) Sherman Medium Tank 1943-1965 (Osprey)

The M4 Sherman tank was the mainstay of the Western allies between 1942 and 1945. Fast and modern it was a big success and was transported as far afield as Russia and North Africa. The American Chief of Staff claimed in November 1943 it was 'hailed widely as the best tank on the battlefield today...'. However, by the Normandy invasion of June 1944 this was not the case: the new German heavy tanks such as the Panther and Tiger were completely outclassing the Sherman.

This title covers the M4 version armed with the 76 mm gun, examining developments such as the HVSS suspension, using much new archive material.
