"...the first-person perspectives offered by Kirby and Köhler put this book on my recommended books list. These personal experiences definitely stirred some interest for me to research more on the design, evolution, and field performance of each of the two tanks.- C.

After reading first couple of of Duel booklets I started to have doubts about the concept on which this series is based. 'M3 Medium Tank vs Panzer III' did nothing to dispell them, if anything it is perhaps the best example so far of a book in this series missing the intended mark by a wide marigin. Out of 80+ pages perhaps five or six are mildly associated with the topic insinuated by series title, the remainder is, if anything, a comparison of U.S. vs German armoured units.

Great overview of two historic, important tanks. Fantastic illustrations and information on the historical context of the battle. It left me wanting to know more about both vehicles, especially how useful 2 fixed .30 cal machineguns are on a tank!

Kasserine Pass was a battle between Americans and Germans in the early stages of the American involvement in North Africa. This book details one aspect of the battle--the duel between American and German tanks. As with others in the series, we get a sense of the design and development of the respective tanks, the technical speicifications, the combatants themselves. Finally, the battle and what happened. Another nice slender volume in the series.
