    more from this reviewer

    I am not an expert so I read this to learn something.

    I have read books on World War II and you can't avoid tanks especially in the European theater. Therefore, I read this book to try and more fully understand how tanks were used in WWII. The author reviews mostly British, Canadian, and U.S. use of tanks. It was interesting. Not sure I got out of it as much as I had hoped. Maybe I just don't get tank tactics.
    The most important part of the book for me was when he wrote about the Russians. I had not read much about Russian tactics and the little I read here was thought provoking.
