Overview

If ever there were an armored fighting vehicle that today's soldier could love, it would be the Bradley: of 2,200 that muscled through Operation Desert Storm, only three were disabled.

In a full-scale, fully detailed look at the M2/M3 Bradley Fighting Vehicle System, Michael Green, veteran writer on military machines and tour guide at a tank museum, and co-author James D. Brown conduct readers through the nuts and bolts, production history, and wartime work of the stalwart Bradley.

Made to carry infantry squads safely to critical points on the battlefield and to perform cavalry scout missions, the Bradley is uniquely able to close in on and destroy enemy forces in support of mounted and dismounted infantry and cavalry combat operations. It also, as recent experience demonstrates, provides a high degree of battlefield survivability.

Unlike the M113 family it replaced, however, the Bradley is no mere "battle taxi." With the 25mm automatic cannon as its main armament and a coaxial 7.62mm machine gun, the Bradley is capable of defeating the majority of armored vehicles it is likely to encounter on the battlefield.

With pictures, diagrams, details of weaponry, and accounts of action, this book about the M2/M3 Bradley gives readers a real sense of how much this hardworking vehicle has contributed to American fighting power in recent years.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

International Plastic Modelers Society, December 2007

“Zenith Publishing has a series of books styled ‘At War.’ Currently there are titles covering the M-1 Abrams and the HMMWV and now the M2/M3 Bradley. If you're expecting a short evening of light reading and looking at the pictures, you're underestimating the depth of coverage this book provides. The writing is moderately technical, as befits a serious study of a modern vehicle. The pictures are gems, with good captioning to explain what's being shown. So prepare to do some serious reading. Then look at all those gorgeous, well lit, nicely composed, detail oriented, and interesting pictures.

“This is a useful book which taught me a lot about the Bradley and its deployment in Iraq. It's not one you pick up and leaf through, it has to be read. The data is in there, you have to dig it out. But once you've read it once, you'll find a wealth of information which you can use on your Bradley model.

“Highly Recommended. No AMS sufferer, or modern armor enthusiast, who is contemplating the construction of a Bradley should pass this book up. It's reasonably priced, and you get a lot of gee-whiz background and historical perspective that you probably won't find in the picture books.”

Cybermodeler Online, October 2007

“If you're looking for a good overview reference on the subject, this is the title you've been waiting for. Definitely recommended!”

Internet Modeler, November 2007

“Michael Green and James D. Brown have created another 128 page soft-bound book for their At-War series that contains excellent color photographs and illustrations that emphasize the use and history of the Bradley infantry fighting vehicle. Practically every page has at least one color or black and white photograph while others have more. Talk about a photo-reference guide these books are it. There are excerpts from personnel who were crewmen on various vehicles documented in this book. The At-War series of books are written in a chronological format for each subject matter covered from background development to present or end of production. Each book has an excellent index to help you locate specific subject matter.”
