      The difference between the M3 Lee and the M3 Grant came down to this. The Lees are the earlier version with a riveted hull and an American-designed turret for the 37mm cannon. The Grants are the later version with the welded hull and a British-designed turret for the 37mm cannon. The author was a British general and he gives a non- partisan look at the generalship of Grant and Lee, the former underestimated and the latter perhaps overrated by most historians. The book game me some new insights on the Civil War from a career military man, especially concerning grand strategy, technology change, and political leadership/5.

      The best M3 Grant and Lee models in any scale are the old Airfix 1/32 (yes, 1/32) scale M3 Grant and Lee. Two separate kits that are superior to the old Tamiya and Monogram M3 Grant or Lee tanks. You can still find them rather cheaply on eBay. The ones I have are dated , one of my Grants was in a Lodela box (Mexican rebox of the Airfix kit). The phrase "right place at the right time" really applied to the M3 Grant. Just when the British Desert Forces needed a reliable tank with a useful, high-explosive round, along comes the Grant, a nasty surprise for Gen. Erwin Rommel. This kit mixes parts from Academy's earlier M3 Lee and new parts for the Grant turret and sand shields.
