Rolling Thunder Against the Rising Sun has the complete battle history of US Army Tank Battalions in the Pacfic from day one to post war occupation Japan & Koreas. This is an excellent book on this subject. The author tell both organizational and battle history of all Pacific War US Army Tank battalion in WW2. I hoping the author will write a sequel to cover the history of US Army Armored Amphibious Tank and Amphibious cargo AMTRACK battalion as well. The text and photo are first rate. I am a very satisfied owner of this book that I bought last weekend at Barnes & Nobel here in Houston.
