Early IDF Sandwich Trucks and Improvised Armoured Vehicles

By Gannon, Tom

Trackpad Publishing, 2019. New book, 90 pages, 260+ photos. This Trackpad Photo Album tells the story of the early sandwich trucks and improvised armored vehicles. Carefully researched and detailed captions put photographs in their historical context. Israeli engineers did not have true armor plate, so they improvised with wood sandwiched between metal sheets. Makeshift fighting vehicles evolved into improvised armored vehicles. Weapons and vehicles came from a variety of sources, beginning with the British, and then through acquisition teams who traveled the globe searching. Armored vehicles were the most difficult to come by, so the various defense organizations and the members of the kibbutzim and moshavim had to improvise. Later, local factories joined the effort, developing skills that came in handy as the war extended. . Soft Cover. As New. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

The Sherman in the Chilean Army

By Gannon, Tom

Trackpad Publishing, 2018. New book, 68 pages, approximately 255 photographs. By the mid-1970s, Chile and Israel were involved in arms dealing together. The two nations started discussing the Israeli-modified M-51 Sherman. It was mechanically and automotively reliable. Second, it had a gun already evaluated in the French AMX-30 MBT which Chile would eventually acquire in the late 1970s. The M-51s were well-received and successful. They offered more interior room than the T-54/55 series, the lighter M41, M24 and the AMX-30, particularly appreciated in the colder regions in the south where thicker clothing could be worn. Israel developed a 60 mm Hyper-Velocity Medium Support weapon system. It was decided to use it in the M-50, to be ordered by Chile, and M24 Chaffees already in Chilean service. The M-50/60 was in the front-line, while M-51s played a supporting role. As of the early 21st Century, the last of the Chilean Shermans were retired, with M-51s first, then the M-50/60s. The tank that first saw service in 1942 continued to serve in a useful role for six decades. Not bad!. Soft Cover. As New. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

Israeli Sherman-Based Self-Propelled Weapons Volume 1

By Gannon, Tom

Trackpad Publishing, 2018. New book, 168 pages, 330 photos, full colour throughout. This is the first volume of two giving a comprehensive look at the unique Israeli Sherman-based Artillery vehicles. The story begins with the improvisations forced upon Haganah and the fledgling IDF in the late 1940s onward. The two volumes discuss the contribution of primarily, self-propelled artillery in the development of TZAHAL (Tsva Ha'Haganah le'Yisra'el, Hebrew for Israel Defense Force or IDF), as it was paired with another significant part of IDF history, the Sherman tank. This subject is best understood by also discussing what came immediately before the Sherman-based artillery weapons in IDF service. Actually, the use of weapons more powerful than rifles and machine guns in the region pre-dates the establishment of TZAHAL which did not occur until May 26, 1948, nearly two weeks after independence. Vehicles in this first volume are: M7 Priest and TOMAT M50 155mm.. Soft Cover. As New. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
