Before I clicked on the link I really did think your dad had drawn cartoons about The Great War. (But I didn't think they were first-hand experiences).

American made tanks, while fast and agile, were poorly armored and vulnerable to a German 88 shell.

I read a few days ago that the Sherman tanks sent to the ETO had a quality problem with their armor: it wasn't up to spec. The army accepted them, believing they needed the tanks, with their flaws.

However the tanks used by the Marines and the Army in the Pacific were sent later as they had a lower priority than their peers in Europe. By the time Okinawa rolled around in 1945 the quality problems had been worked out and the Marines had the superior armor.

They still had problems in Okinawa against Japanese AT, of course.
