Sources in Hunnicutt books
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Sources in Hunnicutt books

I am very impressed with Hunnicutt's books as we all are but the one thing I do not like about them is the lack of sources on each page. I have looked in the AFV book for any sources of photos with no luck. Are they in the book somewhere and I just missed them?

Thanks

I think the sources are the National Archives (Signal corps photos, tests reports etc..) and the various technical manuals... Joe DeMarco also used the National Archives as his main source for the website the.shadock.free.fr/sh...n_minutia/

Any number of authors doing exhaustive work decline to post sources in the body of the work because it would be tedious for both the reader and the publisher and would make the work unwieldy and hideously long. (Same for footnotes). Some that use the approach of listing major sources only at the back of their work and as a guide for further suggested reading. As it happens, I'v been reading a bunch of stuff on WWI surface naval warfare and most list primarily the Bundesarchiv and a fairly limited number of publications, again for considerations of space.

Before the BRAC move and relocation of the stacks from Davis Library, Patton Museum, this was the "Hunnicutt stack" where most of his background material was located. The reasons for not listing it in his books becomes painfully obvious. I could have spent a week just poring over these and hardly made a dent. There are whole books worth of research on German and Russian armor that will never get written just based on what's contained herein. Sad
