Although the tank was developed during the Great War, the armistice came too soon for the potential of the new weapon to be obvious & the USA showed little interest in it. Some visionary officers still championed its cause, but it was only after the outbreak of war in Europe in 1939 & especially the swift overrunning of France by German Panzer forces in 1940, that the US realised it would need a modern army well-equipped with the latest tanks. Steps were immediately taken to create armoured forces & to provide modern tanks & over the course of the war in Europe American M4 Shermans & others were the major element of the western allied armies, while they made a less prominent but still important contribution to the war in the Pacific.

As the box tells us, these men are in summer dress. For many of the poses this appears to mean the common one-piece coveralls, or else trousers & a shirt. Others seem to wear either a shirt not tucked into the trousers, or more likely the popular HBT fatigues, everything here looks authentic and is appropriate for the ‘summer’ label.

In this set we are presented with a range of poses covering various aspects of life around a tank, though obviously not actually handling the vehicle in combat, when most of the crew would be invisible and at most you might see the head of the commander at the hatch.
