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


by Adam Makos

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. $28, randomhousebooks.com
