Greatest Tank Battles 3

Image 1 / 5

‘Greatest Tank Battles' recreates monumental armoured conflict at its most compelling. Filmed on battlefields across the world, and using stunning, ultra-realistic CGI animation and eyewitness accounts, this original series puts viewers in the heat of the battles. Series 3 contains six episodes focusing on all battlefronts of the Second World War and the bloody and futile war against the Vietnamese, whose tank armour turned the war in favour of the Communists. There are the battles of the South Pacific, where the role played by tanks in the decisive victory against the Japanese is often underplayed. A special episode focuses on Michael Wittmann- one of the Second World War's greatest panzer aces and a formidable foe of the Allies, and the crucial battles in Northern Italy between the Canadians and the Nazis.
