Sergeant Raymond Holt, Spring 1944, R. Holt Collection
Sergeant Ray Holt stands on top of his M4A1 in the Spring of 1944, prior to the battle at Cecina. This particular tank was destroyed in the advance on Rome on 4 June 1944. After its loss, Sgt. Holt advanced as driver of the platoon leader's Sherman #11, whose tactical number denotes the first tank of the third platoon. When Sherman #11 destroyed Tiger 221 in Cecina, it employed a reversed-turret stance similar to the one depicted here. Three weeks after Cecina, Sergeant Holt was given command of his own tank for the remainder of the Italian Campaign. (Author's private collection)
The photo on the left was taken by Sherman #11's driver, Sergeant Raymond Holt on the day after the action.
The book includes a prologue by world-renown German Tiger Tank Ace Otto Carius, and an epilogue entitled "Through the Eyes of Tiger Killers," as told by Raymond Holt of the 752nd Tank Battalion.
