A History of Men in Battle Presented by Frederick Forsyth Tank
Tanks are the shock arm of modern warfare. Ever since their first appearance on the devastated battlefields of Europe in World War I, they have played an increasingly important role in battle. A
British invention, the success and failure of tanks has depended on the principles of mobility, protection and firepower. In World War n, the German Panther and Tiger, the American Sherman and the Russian T-34 tried different ways of achieving this balance, which today is reflected in the Israeli
Merkava and the British
Challenger. The tank was a revolutionary weapon, and for the tank soldier, life in its confined world, the atmosphere of conflict and destruction, was very different to anything experienced before. Wntten by JOHN KEEGAN Film editor DENISE PERRIN Producer ROBERT TONER Series producer JOHN GAU
