More About The Tank Killers by Harry Yeide
 
 
 
Overview
This is the story of the specialized U.S. armored force designed specifically to kill enemy tanks in direct combat. It follows the men who fought in the TDs from the formation of the force in 1941 through the victory over the Third Reich in 1945, through North Africa, Italy, France, and Germany, describing a story of American flexibility and pragmatism in military affairs. It draws heavily on the records of the tank destroyer battalions and the units with which they fought, and veterans of the force add their personal stories.

"This gritty and well written account of the TD's is a fantastic read. . . .Whether your interest is armour or history I would highly recommend this book."--Military Modeling

"This thoroughly researched and well presented history of a relatively little known, but significant, contributor to victory is a valuable addition to US Army history"--Journal of America's Military Past
