The complete story of the independent American tank battalions who fought against Hitler's formidable Panzers during WWII is told for the first time in this frank and gritty new history. This wonderfully researched account begins from the moment the tank battalions first landed ashore at Normandy to the last day of combat in Germany, Austria, and Czechoslovakia. Dispelling the myth of the "soul-stirring" life under Patton's steel cavalry - this is a story of shortages of veteran crews, ammunition, and tanks; of limited vistas from buttoned-up tanks guided by fearful infantrymen; and of brave commanders standing tall in their turret hatches as bullets and shells passed close around them.
