From the Vault: Seek, Strike, and Destroy: US Army Tank Destroyer Doctrine in World War II

Leavenworth papers TDFor those interested in the history of US Tank Destroyers,  check out  Seek, Strike, and Destroy: US Army Tank Destroyer Doctrine in World War II by Dr. Christopher Gabel published in 1985.  This paper takes a critical yet fair look at the tank destroyer branch during WWII, explaining why it was created and how it functioned during the war.  At over 79 pages long, this paper is pretty close to being a book.  And even better than a book, it’s available for free.

The paper may be viewed at the Hathi Trust Digital Library site or a slightly lower quality copy can be downloaded at the  Combined Arms Research Library.
