"GREAT tank article"
Posted by disastermaster on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 8:03 PM



Remember the you tube video about that M26 firing up a Panther in Cologne?
Check out this article to read about that 20 year old hotshot tanker from WWII.

Pffttt... I'll up you one... read 'Spearhead' by Adam Makos. Spearhead tells the whole story about the very famous tank duel in Cologne and beyond. The article doesn't compare until you read the book.

I'll have to check that out. I was just surprised that this guy is still alive.
