Interested in doing some further reading about modern Tank Warfare, and it's organization, tactics etc.

Was thinking of picking up: Tom Clancy's Guided Tour of an Armored Calvary..

anybody read it?

It's a quick read. Seems to have been thrown together quickly. It's got some good stuff -- overviews on systems; interview with H.R. McMaster, who commanded E Trp 2/2 ACR during the battle of 73 Easting; et cetera.

If you find it interesting, also see McDonough's Defense of Hill 781 and Bolger's Dragons at War.

Try to get hold of "Tanks of Tammuz" about the 6-Day War. Other good books are "Heights of Courage" (Yom Kippur War), "The Eyes of Orion" and "In the Eye of the Storm" (1991 Gulf War) plus the army field manuals about tank and cavalry operations.
