I very recently bought the Sherman for 70 and also the Bradley for 63 from Zenith...

Received them in 3 days too. As far as I can tell the Bradley is now out of their stock, but they still have the Sherman.

Hunnicutt books are like ghosts - they pop up when and where you least expect them. I only have six of the books and I'm hoping to build the complete library, but it's difficult figuring out where to cast the net to catch one of those elusive fish...

No doubt...
I was trying to acquire the Patton volume... the only one I found was a "used" copy for $185.

Good thing I rode in 48s and 60s and kept my TMs...

I remember being issued and M60A3TTS "dash 10" in 1987. 3" tall manual with a 2 foot high pile of TM changes. I was so glad they had broken the class in half, one half were the CONUS/Reserves/Korea assigned officers who got the M60A3 training and the rest of us were in the M1 training (USAREUR/1st CAV). We got to train on the new stuff and they trained on the dinosaurs, although some of the tanks we used were XM-1s and one had a serial number of 007.

I remember passing them up at the Armor School book store. They were like $100 a copy. I have a couple, the M3 Half-track and the Sheridan. Nice references, but a bit pricey. Any time you see one for around $70, it's a good deal.

My class was also split...us NG/AR and foreign types in dinosaurs and the RAs in Abrams. But after gunnery, all maneuver was done in A3s. Half the RAs went to 2ID anyway.
Also, I was one in my class in a M48A5 unit...so I also had to learn coincidental range finder.
I got some fun stories from school I'll share on the appropriate forum when time allows

Maybe we should post the books we have in the series in this thread - that way if anyone hears of one being sold somewhere, we could post it here for someone to have a chance to fill that void in their collection.

I have: Stuart, Sherman, Bradley, Abrams, Half-Track, and Pershing
