With the ''snowball'' which is gathering momentum over the announced U.S. Half-Tracks in 1/35th scale, now seems like a good time to think about some good, inexpensive, reference material. A good place to start is Concord Publishing''s book on the subject, U.S Half-Tracks in Combat 1941-45 - a review of which can be seen:

It'll be interesting to compare this with the old halftracks book Steve Zaloga did for the Tanks Illustrated series. As ever, the strength is in his captions which offer unit IDs, dates and places where others drivel on or speculate.

Since it's ahead of the wave of new halftrack models, no photoshopped colour plates, back to paintings. Wrobel's plates for the Concord British tanks books wasn't bad, but it wasn' the greatest ever either.
