A history of the M1 Tank. OK, not for everyone, but if you are interested in the subject, it's a very readable, enjoyable work.

An excellent narrative on the development of the Abram M-1 tank. This book provides you with insight on the technical engineering, project management, and politics that drive acquisition.

Fantastic look at the acquisition system and the tortured development of what turned out to be a remarkable weapons system, Pierre Sprey aside.
