The M4 Series Sherman TankThe Sherman tank received a brutal initiation to warfare when the U.S. Army first took it into combat on December 6, 1942 against the Germans in the North African country of Tunisia. They quickly found that the Germans' guns and larger tanks easily outdid the Sherman with its thin armor and low velocity gun.
