The American built M3 tank was one of the first tanks purchased and supplied in large numbers to the British army in WWII, where it was known as the ‘Grant’ or the ‘Lee’. It’s the first American built tank I became aware of as a child, when I saw ‘Monty’s’ at the Imperial War Museum. In this episode I’m joined by prolific tank writer and former employee of Bovington Tank museum, David Fletcher. With Steven Zaloga, David is the author of British Battle Tanks: American-Made World War II Tanks.
