Corgi US61001 D-Day Surrender Set #1 - Sherman Tank, Three Figures and Diorama Base (1:50 Scale) "In war there is no second prize for the runner-up."
- General Omar Bradley

By all accounts, the M4 Sherman medium tank was regarded as the workhorse of the US Army during World War II. In fact, virtually all of the Allied armies employed the Sherman in their armed forces, including the British, who developed an upgunned variant called the "Firefly". Eleven different US plants manufactured six basic models of the Sherman, and by June 1944 over 49,234 battle-ready vehicles had been produced. While it was no match for the German Panther or Tiger tanks, the Sherman soldiered on, using its weight in numbers to wrest control of Europe from the Wehrmacht.

The "D-Day Surrender" Set contains a 1:50 scale US M4A3 Sherman medium tank from the 741st Tank Battalion, three GI figures and diorama base. Designed to be butted up against D-Day Set #2. Sold Out!

Dimensions of Diorama:
Length: 9.5 inches
Width: 7 inches

Release Date: November 2005

Historical Account: The first village to be liberated behind Omaha Beach was Vierville. By mid-day on June 6th, 1944, US forces had taken the village and tanks from the 741st Tank Battalion moved in. The 741st had lost 79 tanks during the landings, many sinking to the bottom of the sea during the initial assault. With the aid of naval gunfire and reinforcements, however, the 741st was once again able to achieve its mission and support the infantry as they moved inland.
