  • I read this historical gem free and early, thanks to Net Galley and Random House Ballantine it s among the top ten percent of the military histories I have read, and it s one of the few that I have recommended to friends and relatives Makos s introduction tells us what he has done to lay his groundwork, and it s impressive We traversed the battlefields of the Third Reich with the men who made history In 2013 Clarence Smoyer and three other veterans traveled to Germany and allowed us to tag a I r [...]


  • First, I was provided a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review This review is 100% my opinion and has not been unduly influenced in any way.Summary The description provided by the publisher states that Spearhead is the riveting World War II story of an American tank gunner s journey into the heart of the Third Reich, where he will meet destiny in an iconic armor duel and forge an enduring bond with his enemy They could not be accurate and succinct.Initial Thoughts I like Adam First, I [...]


  • First off full disclosure I received this book in a GR Giveaway and am grateful for the chance to review it In sum, I liked this book not as much as his A Higher Call but liked it just the same Makos schtick seems to be to tell a very engaging war story and to tie together characters from both sides of the conflict at some point He weaved that tale wonderfully in A Higher Call, but falls a bit short here For my taste, the first half of Spearhead has a bit too much made up dial First off full dis [...]


  • Tank versus tank Pershing versus Panther And caught on film No, this is not a war movie, rather this is a World War II tale worth making into a movie Adam Makos met with Clarence Smoyer in 2012 and that launched a journey that led to this book.Clarence Smoyer was a tank gunner in the 3rd Ard Division lead by General Rose He came ashore in France 3 weeks after D Day as a loader and was promoted to gunner in a Sherman tank in August As the book opens, the 3rd Ard Division was laying Tank versus ta [...]


  • I am convinced Adam Makos has another blockbuster on his hands It was simply spectacular I am also really glad I had the opportunity to see the trailer before the book arrived I felt as if I knew Clarence already The author made this frightening time of history so easy to follow and understand which will make it all the readable to those of us and I know there will be many who know nothing of tank warfare and never really thought it would ever be anything that could possibly be I am convinced Ad [...]


  • Incredible story Despite being a history major, I had never read much about the experience of the men fighting in tanks during World War 2 This books gives excellent insight into their harrowing experience while telling one man s story of bravery, regret, and redemption.


  • Thank you net galley for the advance read copy of this novel This was an excellent job fiction account of tank warfare towards the end of WWII This is not my typical genre but I very much enjoyed this book It read like an action film rather than just facts and figures of who did what when I highly recommend this for history buffs and for my fellow historical fiction readers Well written, face paced and emotionally rewarding
