IN ADDITION, THE AUTHOR, WHO WROTE THE FIRST PUBLISHED BIOGRAPHY OF MICHAEL WITTMANN, INTRODUCES INTERESTING ASPECTS OF HOW GERMAN TIGER COMMANDERS APPROACHED COMBATING THE CAST HULL AND TURRET OF THE SHERMAN. IT'S A BOOK BOTH THE WORLD WAR TWO HISTORY BUFF AND THE SERIOUS ARMOUR MODELLER WILL ENJOY! HARDBOUND, 8 1/2 x 11 INCHES,130 PAGES TOTAL, TWELVE COLOR PAGES, ENAMEL PAGES BEAUTIFULLY BOUND. BOOK WEIGHS ONE POUND ELEVEN OUNCES. THIS BOOK WAS AWARDED A CERTIFICATE OF MERIT BY THE STATE OF ILLINOIS STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY. I'LL BE AT AMPS. SINCERELY GREGORY JONES

No need to shout, try retyping with the caps lock off and people might read.

FYI, typing all CAPS is considered shouting in e-mail/forum protocol

try an eyeglass prescription. If that doesn't fit your image,try a larger point font for your comms.
Sounds like a nice book. Got a pic of the cover?Publisher? Price?

Greg,

Sounds interesting. As a Sherman affectionado I would like to get one.

I can't make AMPS - do you have a site? Is there any other source? What is your price?

Thanks
