This is the story of the final Arab-Israeli war in the Sinai, where both sides enjoy remarkable success, but also suffer stunning defeat. Granted once in a while typically at the end the Arab guys did fess up, but overall it was a bit pathetic. The focus is on the 2nd Canadian Armored Brigade fighting to make it past the shores against the cold blooded German brigade. Another notable episode focused on The Battle of Normandy.
Same issue for audio, and a bit harsh language. First, the interview audio is really bad. They would easily get a 5 with the exception of two key issues that I wanted to address as a warning to others. The Israeli's admitted where they were dumb and made blunders. True, to just rag on their own dumbness would be poor, but don't keep putting these 'Professors' Dr. It presents the story of the American 2nd Armored Calvary Regiment battled not only Iraq's royal guard but also terrible field conditions and a blinding sandstorm.

This is the story of the American tankers who rush to the aid of the South and the bloody battles they fight up and down the Korean Peninsula. The final struggle for Vietnam begins. The show recaps a lot of information after each 'commercial break'. Second, and I know they are trying to sound 'balanced' but the Arab guys are just pathetic in their stand. Outstanding interviewee's and just an outstanding job in all other areas. They didn't even talk much about how Israel made it quite a ways into Africa and really threatened Egypt.
I'm enlisting in the Army as a 19k, so naturally I'm a huge fan of the Abrams tank, as that's what I'm going to be doing for the next four years. The debut episode of season 2 presented one of the most important developments in the history of war, from 1916. Why stand there and feed us full of this politically correct stuff. It is filled with a wealth of information about these great military machines and the battlegrounds where they went head to head. Now the Communists combine guerrilla tactics with conventional military might and send their own tanks into battle. But American Tankers quickly discover that even the power of armor cannot overcome the guerrilla. This is a story of survival, where a few out-numbered tankers manage to hold off an enemy of overwhelming size in one of the greatest tank battles ever waged.
This battle took place during the Gulf War. Not everyone likes garbage mouths. In 1973, Syria launches a surprise attack against Israel in the Golan Heights. Now the Communists combine guerrilla tactics with conventional military might and send their own tanks into battle. Figure you got my money anyway? This is the story of the final North African battles as two of history's most famed tank commanders - Patton and Rommel - go head to head.
My only problem with the way this episode was presented is probably a bit unavoidable. I know war vets both sides can spew garbage, but you could have at least dubbed it out. That was a major item to leave out for 'balance'. Aside from those two things, this is by far the best series out there! This is the story of the largest tank-vs-tank clash of the Second World War, as Hitler masses hundreds of panzers in a desperate bid to halt Patton's advance.

On the Europe and Africa campaigns. I mean, come on folks aside from the crossing of the Suez which of course was strategically brilliant by the Arabs and well worthy of their celebration , they just dropped the ball and got their tails kicked. This was when the British unveiled the new mobile weapon that was the first tank. This is the story of how the Nazi's unleashed the blitzkrieg on Western Europe as thousands of Panzer tanks raced across rugged terrain and crushed Allied defenses. This is the very historically noted story of the allied invasion on the beaches of France.

I mean history is history guys. I have to say I'm biased. Another notable episode from season 2 told the tale behind the 1944 Battle for the Baltics, when the Russians chase the Nazi forces through the Baltic States. Greatest Tank Battles season 3 episode 5 Battle for Vietnam Armoured Attack 1968: The Americans mobilize hundreds of tanks to help defeat Communist forces in South Vietnam. Sorry, not my review, and now I don't buy entire series' any more. The show's debut episode focused on The Battle of 73 Easting. It is quite poor and totally unprofessional.
