Default Spearhead

Hi all. I'd like to share with you a very good book to read.
Spearhead by Adam Makos.
The WW2 story of a US 3rd Armoured tankers exploits and journey fighting across Europe culminating in the well known Cologne Panther duel with the very new and rare Pershing tank.
Adam Makos is a great story teller capturing both sides of the conflict. A highly recommended read.

You can also Google the film that is mentioned in the book having been filmed where the Pershing killed the Panther. Short little B&W footage is out there showing it.

And it is a good read
