The Four Eras We Cover:
WW1: Mud, Barbed Wire and Trenches The United Kingdom and France started development of tanks in order to break through enemy lines. They were intended to breach no man’s land, but the tank quickly became a killing machine integrated in combined arms operations.
WW2: Proving Ground For Armoured Warfare: For the first time, large numbers of Tanks and Armoured vehicles would combat one another. From the jungles of Pacific Atolls to the arid desert of Libya, the icy and windy steppes of the Soviet Union and the rainy bocage of Normandy.
The Cold War: East vs West: Two opposed superpowers led to the splitting of the world into East and West. The USA and USSR, together with their own alliances, forged a new generation of armored vehicles learning from numerous proxy wars.
The Modern Era: Are Tanks Still Relevant?: Despite numerous prophets heralding the demise of the tank, armor is still an important branch of all the World’s militaries. There are no signs of this changing soon, with the development of tanks continuing to adapt to the modern battlefield.
