Preview: SON OF SHERMAN - VOLUME 1 - the first of the Sherman trillogy

Ampersand Publishing always put out publications that  are detailed and full of great pics but also pretty good in value – we think that they have taken the cake with the detail, reference and price on their long awaited opus “SON OF SHERMAN VOLUME 1: The Sherman, Design and Development” If you like this tank then you really should take a look this preview..
SON OF SHERMAN VOLUME 1: The Sherman, Design and Development

Due to the sheer breadth of the subject matter, the original Modeler’s Guide to the Sherman has now been split into multiple volumes under the banner of “Son of Sherman.”

Written and edited by Patrick Stansell and Kurt Laughlin
