  1.

  2. I didn't see Armageddon's song by Andy Farman (or it didn't show up in the search). It's a 5 books series (6 if we count the prequel during the Vietnam war) not focused on tanks but there is some"tank" action. The series depict the WW III see by the eyes of multiple characters all over the world. They die quite quickly for most of them since the war is brutal.

  4. 2 officers died. One a French Adjutant Mariotti (FMLM) in Lettin Halle in 1984 - his vehicle was rammed by a Stasi Ural 375 (2 French NCO were also badly wounded during this incident) and and Major Nicholson (USMLM), one year later in Ludwigslust. He was shot and left bleeding when he exited his vehicle near a soviet base by a sergeant just because he saw an American officer near his sentry post and panicked. (you could read the story https://usmlm.us/) A lot of others members of the ALT were wounded, beaten during those days while the allied never physically assaulted ant soviet one, the detained and released them after few hours of hospitality. There is an excellent book based on interview of UK, French and US officers involved in RDA "countryside photo safari" during the cold war. "Secrets of the Cold War: US Army Europe's Intelligence and Counterintelligence Activities Against the Soviets During the Cold War" by L. McCaslin. Published by Helion and Company.
