Differential and Integral Calculus - NS Piskunov

Fundamentals of Mathematical Analysis - GM Fichtenholz

Course of Higher Mathematics - VI Smirnov (vol 1&2 on calculus)

I would like to know if the texts are in any way markedly different enough to select one over the other. As far as I can tell from the prefaces and tables of contents, it is hard to find a stark contrast between the books; the authors occasionally gave each other suggestions even!

I am especially interested on reading Smirnov because I like the idea of finishing all five volumes as a good mathematical foundation while reading supplementary/specialized content. Thanks in advance for any relevant thoughts.
