Although this is subtitled A History of America’s World War II Tank Destroyer Force, it’s more a history of the actions in which they took part. That starts with north Africa but mainly concerns Italy, Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge and the final battles in Germany. While the tank destroyer force contributed widely to America’s war effort, once the fighting was over they were deemed to be so flawed that by November 1946 all the battalions had been disbanded. The small typeface may put some off, but it’s full of interesting history and is worth a look.
