Now you need to find the Eastern Front.

Great deal by the way.

Its about a Canadian who ends up as a crewman in a jagdpanzer IV, from the reviews it has good info on combat, tactics, and living from day to day in one of these tanks. I'll post further when I finish reading it.
Its a good read, covers the day to day life of a tanker on the Eastern front. There is a nice little tale at the end of the book that shows how delicate the main gun could be, that led to the crew blowing it up.

Default Toadmans Tank Pictures

Chris Hughes still offers his Toadmans series of tank pictures at Toadmans Tank Pictures . I bought 'em when they were offered just as CD's but now they can be purchased/downloaded for $5 each, or for $4 if you're an AMPS member. It seems like an excellent deal given the large number of highly detailed pictures. At least that's what the CD's offered and I'd have no reason to think you wouldn't get the same number of pictures in the download offering.

Default For those who especially like American armor

I see that philipat mentioned the Hunnicutt "Sheridan" book. Hunnicutt authored a whole series of tank books (shown below), including the Sherman and Stuart among others. These are excellent references for those subjects. The Chismon book "U.S. Tracked Military Vehicles" is an excellent reference on all U.S. armored vehicles and gives a lot of detail, and pictures, on the genesis of the full production models.
