Spearhead: An American Tank Gunner, His Enemy, and a Collision of Lives in World War II by Adam Makos


With humanity and visceral scenes of combat, WWII memoir does battle with the best in the genre.

Written by Jenn Thornton

From the author of A Higher Call comes a riveting account about the young crew of a tank—including tank gunner Clarence Smoyer—in the legendary 3rdArmored Division (“Spearhead”). Makos employs the tone of a true storyteller to a military adventure that is at once exciting and poignant. From the Armor Ambush at Mons to the Battle of the Bulge, this book is one big battle royale—and a moving tribute to the everyday soldier in extraordinary circumstances.
