Book Alert: Can Openers by Nicholas Moran

Echo Point Publishing has posted pre-order information for the long awaited volume by World of Tanks researcher Nicholas Moran on US Tank Destroyer development.  This is a hardcover book of 240 pages containing photographs and reports, many of which come previously undiscovered from the archives.  Deliverly is said to be late December, hopefully in time for Christmas.  We have had the opportunity to view an advance digital copy of this book and can vouch for its quality.  We will be posting a more complete book review later this week.

Publisher’s Description:

CanOpenerPreorderEcho Point is pleased to partner with World of Tanks again for this Limited Edition Hardcover edition of Can Openers by Nicholas Moran, aka The Chieftain,” Director of Militaria Relations at Wargaming America.

This new work fills a gap in the existing documentation for these fascinating tank killers.

Hardback, about 240 pages long, $52.95 plus shipping, and filled with reports and photographs taken primarily from Ordnance Branch and Tank Destroyer Board archives, most of it previously unpublished, it traces the development of anti-tank vehicles from the 37mm Gun Motor Carriage T2 through to the 90mm Self-Propelled Anti-Tank Gun M56 Scorpion. The bonus code coming with the book, for PC, is for an M56. It does not cover the deployment and use of the vehicle, only the technical development of the designs and the decisionmaking behind that development.

Order fulfillment will take place toward the end of December.  We hope these may even ship in time for holiday delivery(!)  Updates on our delivery timeframe will be posted as they occur.  Orders will be shipped in the order received, so order early to ensure the earliest delivery date!
