  • Spearhead by Adam Makos

    Just finished reading the book Spearhead by Adam Makos. It covers the latter part of WWII and focuses around a Sherman tank crew attached to the 3rd Armored Division -Spearhead. This crew is one of the first to be given the new Pershing tank with a 90mm main gun. The book basically revolves around Clarence Smoyer, who was the gunner on the Pershing. It also covers the actions of the infantry attached to the 3rd Armored Division and the other tank units of the 3rd Armored Division.. This unit was involved in the largest urban battle of the European theater in the taking of the city of Cologne.
    The below video link revels the ending of the book.

    It can be found on the author's web page at:

    Excellent book! Just finished reading it.

    Quite a bit of tank action and cooperation with the armored infantry.

    This true story is centers on a tank crew that is given one of the first M26 Pershing tanks in combat.
