Can Openers – The Development of American Anti-Tank Motor Carriages by Nicholas Moran (aka ‘The Chieftain’)
This new work from Nicholas Moran fills a gap in the documentation of the US tank killers. Hardback, 232 pages, and filled with reports and photographs taken primarily from Ordnance Branch and Tank Destroyer Board archives, most previously unpublished, the book traces the development of American anti-tank vehicles from the 37mm Gun Motor Carriage T2 through to the 90mm Self-Propelled Anti-Tank Gun M56 Scorpion. The book concentrates on the technical development of the various designs and the decision making behind that development. It does not cover the deployment and use.
