Everyone is familiar with World War 2. Almost everyone has heard of We Band of Brothers and Citizen Solders other World War 2 classics. Death Traps by Belton Y. Cooper are in a league completely on its own. Its is a compelling story about a lieutenant in the 3rd armored division of the USA army. This novel is about Belton Y. Cooper¿s journey from Normandy to Germany. A well written classic to be, it is worthy of Medal of Honor of books. Along with Cooper¿s story he also includes a huge amount of information about tanks, you will not have known about. This great novel should be stacked among the classics in a book store. This novel has potential to be this. You could pick up this book without knowing anything about World War 2. Then finally come out an expert. For example a little bit of textual evidence of my theory is, ¿A few days later, a lone German Civilian came to headquarters and asked to see the commanding officer. Although he was shabbily dressed, as most civilians were at that time, his bearing and manner suggested that he was well-educated. He told Colonel McCarthy that he had orders from G5 to get the records in the basement. McCarthy smelled a rat.¿ That quote was also my personal favorite of the book. Before I read this book I had a moderate knowledge of World War 2. Now I can safely say that I have become and expert in the 3rd armory division

Well, I'm about halfway through the book and its pretty good but it seems to be a description of the Normandy invasion more than a description of maintaining and recovering Shermans. There is some information in that regard, but so far most of the text is describing the progress of the 3rd Armored division. Anyway, still a good book but didn't seem to match my expectation from seeing the cover and title.
