Panther vs Sherman ISBN: 978 1 84603 292 9Did the Sherman or Panther display greater combatvalue on the battlefields in World War II. This book will be a fascinating comparison of combat performance of two of the most important tanks duringthe crucial fighting of 1944 as Germany struggledto regain its former dominance of the European battlefields.All tank designs attempt to balance the essential technical triad of armour, mobility and firepower. Analysing the design and development of each tank, Steve Zaloga concludes that the Panther was clearly a superior tank to the Sherman. But this alone is not enough to that ensure one tank is victorious over another in combat. Instead tactical circumstances are often more battlefields.All saw the enemy first. Who fired first. This book uses a compelling account of the ferocious fighting in the Ardennes region to explain the successes and failures of each tank. Discover the true story of the violent face-off between the tanks around Arracourt as each side battled for control of the region with clear descriptions of the strategic situation in 1944, crew training and real combat reports. In the end, the combination of highcost, low reliability, and mediocre crew performance undermined the Panther's actual combat value on the battlefield in 1944-45. The Sherman, for all its technical shortcomings, enjoyed the advantage of greater durability and better crew training. These largely overcame the daunting tactical circumstances it faced in combat to make it one ofthe Allies' critical war winning weapons in WorldWar II.
