Book Alert: Ampersand Publishing announces three new books

US halftracksOver at Armorama is a post announcing that Ampersand Publishing is going to release three new books for American AFV fans. The first is a new hard cover book covering American half-tracks.  At 456 pages, this promises to be a very comprehensive look at the ubiquitous US armored transport.  Ampersand’s Son of Sherman is one of the definitive books on the Sherman tank.  It can be hoped that this book on US Halftracks will continue that tradition of quality, in-depth coverage.
