This is the story of the German Panzer forces of World War II, when these awsome fighting machines came of age.
The Light and Medium Panzers This is the story of the early war panzers: the Mark I and II machine which formed the bulk of the Panzerwaffe in the early years of the war. These machines were already considered unfit for service in 1939, but nonetheless had to be pressed into action in Poland, France, Norway, Greece Africa and Russia. Featuring rare footage and incisive commentary this unique film illustrates the follies of war. The versatile Panzer III, the German medium tanks, were forced into action to plug the gaps torn in the Wehrmacht ranks by the T-34. The medium tanks were quickly eclipsed by the superior numbers of tanks fielded by the Red Army, but nonetheless had to be kept in service in all theatres until the end of the war.
The Tiger This is the story of the legendary heavy tank developed by the Panzerwaffein response to the Soviet T-34 and KV1 tanks. This fearsome machine was the equal of any other tank on the battlefield, but there were simply never enough to turn the tide which was already flowing against Hitler's Germany.
