Panzer Battles: Hitler's Tanks in Action

For many the awesome image of German tanks streaming unchecked across open European countryside is the ultimate depiction of German superiority during the early part of World War Two. There can be no doubt that the immense strength, speed and coordination of the Panzer divisions facilitated the success of the Blitzkrieg tactic, and hence European domination. However, the myth of German tank invincibility would soon be shattered as Allied technical advancement and sheer numbers coming out of Russia would turn the tide on the battlefield. Made with the cooperation of the Bovington Tank Museum this DVD discusses the power, tactics and designs of tanks, as well as their role in the overall outcome of World War Two.
