Summary, etc.: Readers will almost feel the ground rumble beneath their feet when they open this action-packed book about the fearsome Abrams tank! They will learn the history of the tank and its different versions, as well as tank specifications including size and weight, top speed, armament, and cost. Also described are the roles of Abrams tank crewmembers—the commander, the gunner, the loader, and the driver. Weapons and camouflage are discussed, as well as the future of the Abrams tank.
