Synopsis

Synopsis

In this title, David Fletcher relates the story of the Sherman Crab Flail using rare sources and photographs. Among the first tanks ashore on D-Day, the "Crab" proved its worth both in its mine-clearing role and as a fighting machine. This book recounts some of its more glorious moments with the famous British 79th Armoured Division and the US Army, giving a detailed exploration of the history of a powerful and innovative machine and the deadly mines it faced.

"David Fletcher's Sherman Crab Flail Tank follows the design and history of the Sherman tank, considering its development and deployment. Colorful artwork and vintage photos supplement a collection recommended for any in-depth military library focusing on equipment history." -The Bookwatch (February 2008)

"While we do not as yet have a proper all-styrene Crab kit, there are resin offerings on the market of this very unique and interesting vehicle type. Until now, tailored references have been very thin on the ground. Thank you, Mr. Fletcher for filling in the gap!" -Frank V. De Sisto, missing-lynx.com (November 21, 2007)

The author does a sterling job of telling this somewhat convoluted, but immensely interesting story of the development of this weapon... It makes for another superb edition on a most interesting piece of equipment and a tale you are sure to enjoy." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (October 2007)
