Jarhead, I have this book and it's pretty good:

https://www.amazon.com/Encyclopedia-Tanks-Armored-Fighting-Vehicles/dp/1571458069/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=encyclopedia+of+tanks+and+armored+fighting+vehicles&qid=1622830147&s=books&sr=1-4

It isn't focused on just US and WW2, so it might lack the depth you're seeking.  It reads sort of like a Janes publication.  Might be worth having in your library regardless.

I can send you a screenshot or two of a couple pages to show you what kind of info is in there; let me know.

It looks good. Yes, please post a few screenshots! thanks.

This one was delivered last week and it has exceeded my expectations. I'm glad I got it. https://www.amazon.com/American-Tanks-World-General-Military/dp/1782009310/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1621694463&sr=1-11
