STORY OF TANKS DVD: The changing face of tank warefare over the past 100 years. The first tanks were produced from late 1914 by Great Britain and France to break the deadlock of trench warfare on the Western Front. Their first use was during the Battle of the Somme in 1915. Britain and France built thousands of tanks, while Germany only developed and bought into service 20 vehicles of a single design. In this DVD, we look at the development of tanks throughout history including the German tank divison, Russian tanks & U.S. tank development. We also look at tanks in the Cold War. While they would not only continue to be produced in huge numbers the technology advanced dramatically making them larger with thicker armour and generally much more effective. This is a fascinating DVD not to be missed by those with an interest in military history and weapon development. LITTLE BOOK OF TANKS: The tank was born to break the deadlock of World War I s Western Front, where trench-based defence in depth barbed wire, machine guns and artillery had led to immense loss of life. Dogged by mechanical unreliability and early misuse, postwar development of technology and tactics saw the Germans open World War II with the devastating Blitzkrieg lightning war in which armoured divisions led the way. Tanks dominated the battlefields of World War II and have continued to develop, reaching their apogee in the MBTs of the biggest military-industrial complexes the US Abrams, German Leopard, British Challenger, Israeli Merkava and Russian T90. Today, in a world of asymmetric warfare, tanks may dominate the battlefield, but infantry rocket weapons and anti-tank helicopters have evened things up and ensure that tanks must develop further to meet changing threats. Learn about the changing face of tank warfare through the 50 most important, iconic vehicles from 1914 to today. Show more Show less
