Available in Kindle eBook, trade paperback, and audiobook, the complete Armor series chronicles the adventures of a Sherman tank crew as they fight the Axis from North Africa to Berlin during WW2. Action-packed, authentic, and filled with flawed but tough men of the Greatest Generation, Armor drops the reader into the horror, brotherhood, and triumph of armored warfare. You can get the books individually or as an omnibus.
Readers will fight alongside the crew as they go head to head with Tigers at Kasserine Pass (Armor #1: The Battle of North Africa, February 7), race to Palermo in Sicily (Armor #2: The Fight for Sicily, February 28), land during the horrific first assault wave at Omaha Beach on D-Day (Armor #3: Fortress Europe, March 27), survive Hitler’s last blitzkrieg in the Battle of the Bulge (Armor #4: The Bulge, April 24), and batter their way into the heart of Nazi Germany, where the war ends, and they can now go home (Armor #5: Reich’s Fall, May 22).
All the while, the reader will live with the crew in the cramped, noisy, and vulnerable fighting machine that was the American Sherman tank, alternately criticized as “deathtraps” and praised as the “tank that won the war.” With appeal to tank, history, and action buffs, Armor pays equal attention to the Sherman tank as the men who fought in it. An enormous amount of research went into providing rich detail about the history, locales, and armored warfare.
Thematically, these stories explore how men come together (or don’t) in combat, the things they do to stay sane and endure the horrors of war, how men must learn to survive the peace after surviving war, and why the Greatest Generation put their lives on the line to defeat the Nazis. While fought for the noblest cause, WW2 was also history’s most brutal conflict, the cost of which was staggering, with another cost paid by many of the veterans for the rest of their lives.
The books are available in eBook and trade paperback exclusively through Amazon.com. The omnibus will release June 26 along with the series audiobook, narrated by Garrett Michael Brown. The covers, which imitate propaganda posters of the period, were designed by Eloise J. Knapp.
“An instant classic of World War II historical fiction … brilliantly written, populated with realistic and entirely human characters who stay with you long after finishing the last page, and searingly, unflinchingly open about the realities of combat during World War II as experienced by the crew of an M4 Sherman medium tank.” – The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviewer, complete review here
