Seriously! 30 Of The Best Sherman Tank Action Pictures We Could Find On the Internet

The most numerous tank used by the U.S. and the Allies during World War II was the M4 Sherman. The British named the tank after the American Civil War General William Tecumseh Sherman.

Despite the fact that they were outclassed by the medium and heavy tanks of Nazi Germany late in the war, the M4 Sherman proved to be cheaper to produce, very reliable, and available in large numbers. Many thousands were distributed through the Lend-Lease program to the Soviet Union and the Britsh and her Commonwealth nations.

We have collected these 30 action shots of Sherman tanks during WWII, enjoy!
