Publisher's Summary

ARMOR: The Complete Series chronicles the journey of a tank crew through the Second World War, from North Africa to Berlin. Action-packed, authentic, and filled with flawed but tough men of the Greatest Generation, ARMOR drops you straight into the horror, brotherhood, and triumph of armored warfare.

You'll fight alongside the crew as they go head-to-head with Tigers at Kasserine Pass, race to Palermo in Sicily, land during the horrific first assault wave at Omaha Beach, crash against the Norman hedgerows, make a stand against Hitler's last blitzkrieg in the Battle of the Bulge, and batter their way into the heart of Nazi Germany. All the while, you'll live with the crew in the cramped, noisy, and vulnerable fighting machine that was the American Sherman tank.

ARMOR: The Complete Series puts together for the first time all five episodes in Craig DiLouie's historical military fiction action & adventure series: The Battle of North Africa, The Fight for Sicily, Fortress Europe, The Bulge, and Reich's Fall.

This is a fun listen. I highly recommend it for tank nuts.

If you love armor and ww2 you will enjoy this series. First off, it’s a great value. You get a lot of listening for one credit. Second the narrator does an amazing job. I hope I come across him more. Some readers whom do characters kind of struggle to make them separate without cheesing it up a bit. None of that here. Even the accents are well done.

Now the story. It’s pretty good. I debated between four or five stars here. For the vast majority it is excellent. Fits the historical backdrop. Always referencing actual drives and engagements. It’s really well done in that sense. The dialogue between the crew is for the most part, and I’m kind of inclined to nit pick here, is pretty strong. However, I doubt anyone will notice the things I did and so I give it a well earned 4.5.

Another really cool thing about this set of stories is that there is sound effects. Now I normally hate them. As well as music, in audiobooks. However, it’s really low key and used sparingly. So that when you hear a Stuka dive it adds to the character’s fear instead of blending into the background noise as well... background noise. It contributes well to the world the author has created.

Check this out if you want some tank action. It’s easily top 3 in tank fiction on audible. Far, far, to many in this genre are full of cliches and corney dialogue. This one was a pleasure.

I requested a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is my second series from this author !! Awesome

I absolutely love these books. Yes they are a little far fetched but the history part is pretty good. It is a very good listen. Very much worth it.

worth it

I enjoyed this book. It's the audio equivalent of a page turner. The characters seem very real.

Gritty WWII Combat Stories

I enjoyed this series of books. After finishing the Crash Dive series from this author, I was looking forward to this series and Mr. Dilouie did not disappoint. Lots of action. The characters are well-developed. And as the series went on I grew more attached to them. I felt the author did a good job blending action with historical description, and struck a decent balance developing fully rounded characters. The books follow a crew through Africa and the European campaign of WWII, ending with the fall of Nazi Germany.

Pedestrian story and narration

It’s ok but not gripping by any means. It’s a good value as an 5 book buy and I liked the ending. Had lots of potential but it wasn’t really a great listen.

Great story on the experiences of a tank crew.

This story captures so much of the real experiences of a tank crew. The hardships and day to day requirements to keep a complex combat vehicle operational are on point. The friendships and banter amongst the crew are true to life. Take it from a combat tanker, this is an enjoyable series.

Great Story but Too Short

22 hours long and I wish there was another 22 to listen to. The author mixes character development, technical detail, action and foxhole philosophy in an enthralling story. Its fun, insightful and engaging. I only gave the performance 4 stars because the sound effects occasionally sound a touch cheezy. This is the first audiobook I look forward to listening to again.

Overall pretty good.

I liked the audio enhancements, it really added to the story for me.

The overll story was good. it wandered a couple of times but always came back on task. It took me a wee while to get into this one, probably a couple of hours for it to grip my full attention, but once it did it was compulsory listening. Luckily I had a solo car trip down the country (NZ) and back which pretty much cut it out.

Well worth a listen
