From the Vault: WW2 US Armor Force Pictures

Here is a photo gallery of images taken from the book “He’s in the Armored Force Now.”  This book was published in 1942 and was written by Captain Addison R. McGhee Jr., and it follows the experiences of some typical trainees in the US armored force in the early part of WW2.  This book is long out of print, having been published in 1942.  Those looking for photos of early war US tanks such as the M2 light or M3 medium will find these pictures of interest.  The photos are posted in slideshow format below.
