Greatest Tank Battles


Using state-of-the-art CGI and eyewitness accounts from the men who fought in them, Greatest Tank Battles recreates monumental armoured conflict at its most compelling. Filmed in actual battle locations, each episode gives a complete picture of tank warfare, from the General’s strategic eye view to the tank soldier’s frontline eye view; all meticulously analysed by expert military historians. From the mighty 88mm cannon of the Second World War German Tiger to the thermal imaging target system of the Gulf War M-1 Abrams, and from the deserts of El Alamein to the largest tank battle ever, the Battle of Kursk, the series brings the full fury of mechanised warfare to life.
