Reviews

"This book is without a doubt an Osprey book. Like others in Osprey's catalog, detailed cutaway illustration and a rich collection of photographs make this book a treasure for armor enthusiasts, modelers, and anyone who is interested in the ground war in Europe... David Fletcher's Sherman Firefly is a great addition as a reference book in the World War II Database library. Like tanks? Definitely check it out." -C. Peter Chen, "World War II Database" (March 16, 2008)
"Fletcher's writing style is perhaps unusual...but his content is outstanding. He offers a thorough look at the history of the Firefly. As with all Osprey books, this one is profusely illistrated with period photographs...and lavish full-color...drawings and sketches... All in all, I recommend this book to anyone interested in WWII British or American tanks." -Scott Mingus, "Charge!" (February 21, 2008)
"The Firefly was arguably the best WW2 tank of the Western allies to be produced in quantity, as far as anti-tank performance was concerned... All [of its production history] is described here and so is the Firefly's combat use, as well as interesting sidelights such as the use of Fireflies for concrete-busting attack on bunkers and Firefly production for the US Army. Very highly recommended." -John Prigent, "Internet Modeler "(March 2008)
