Ive got one somewhere on comparative development In WW2, but not before. Ill see if I can find it, im having something of a reshuffle at the moment.
I would think the nearest off the top of my head I can recommend is Kenneth Macksey's 'Tank Vs Tank'. Which interestingly was the book that inspired my interest in tanks in the first place. Read it in the School Library, about the only worthwhile thing I learnt at school.c:)

Yes, that was it. I seem to recall it was better than the reviews indicated.
Other than those 2, I cant think of any others. I remember reading 'Death by Design', which I seem to recall touched on the inadequacy of British tank guns. But the reviews support the idea is not in any great depth.

As to US and British world war II guns, I would also recommend "Firing Now!" by Dick Taylor.

To add onto Ken's suggestion, Ogorkiewicz book "Technology of Tanks" digs into the technical issues of tank guns. Hard copies are very rare and expensive, but it can be read in PDF format at Archive.org.
Have always postponed buying the book, because of the price.
now to figure out how to get that on my pad for reading.
