The M4 Sherman, officially Medium Tank, M4, was the most widely used medium tank by the United States and Western Allies in World War II. The M4 Sherman proved to be reliable, relatively cheap to produce, and available in great numbers. It was also the basis of several other armored fighting vehicles including self-propelled artillery, tank destroyers, and recovery vehicles. Tens of thousands were distributed through the Lend-Lease program to the British Commonwealth and Soviet Union. The tank was named by the British for the American Civil War general William Tecumseh Sherman
This Waterson’s Forces Of Valor model represents an M4 Sherman from the 753rd Tank Battalion, Gustav Line Italy 1944. During World War II, the 753rd's first assignment was with the 45th Infantry Division's amphibious assault at Sicily. The battalion fought valiantly throughout the Mediterranean Campaign. In all, the 753rd Medium Tank Battalion participated in seven campaigns: Sicily, Naples-Foggia, Rome-Arno, Southern France, Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsace and Central Europe.
The 753rd Tank Battalion was a separate tank battalion. Separate tank battalions were military formations used by the United States Army during World War II, especially in the European Theater of Operations. These battalions were temporarily attached to infantry, armored, or airborne divisions according to need, though at least one battalion (745th Tank Battalion) spent the entire war in Europe attached to one division. They were also known as general headquarters ("GHQ") tank battalionsThis M4 Sherman is great addition to your historical tank collection
