Synopsis

Panzer III: Medium Tank
In the battle arena of World War II, few images were more formidable than that of the German military's Panzer III. As ominous as it was though, the Panzer was not indestructible - as proven by the superior might of the Soviet T-34 tank that defeated the Panzer III when Germany invaded Russia in 1941. Though it had played a key role in the Blitzkrieg victories early on, the days of the Panzer III were numbered despite its continued use as a command tank in the East and as a popular weapon in such secondary arenas as Norway until the war drew to a close. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Stug III & IV Assault Guns
The documentary Stug III & IV Assault Guns offers footage of these German military machines as they rolled through the major battlefields of World War II. These machines acquired a fierce reputation as tank destroyers by the end of the war. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Panzer I & II: Light Tanks
Panzer I & II: Light Tanks offers archival footage of the more mobile, smaller machines that helped the Nazis quickly succeed in invading Poland and parts of Russia. The film explains how these lighter tanks were in many ways more effective than the more powerful machines that sacrificed mobility in order to have more powerful weaponry. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Panzer IV: Heavy Tank
Christened the "workhorse" of the German Army for its pivotal role in supporting the Mark III in the Panzer divisions, the sturdy and reliable Panzer IV was a key component to early Blitzkrieg victories in World War II. Produced from 1936 to 1945, the versatile Panzer IV was later utilized by the Syrian service until the final tank was destroyed by the Israeli Army in 1967. This is the story of the tank that struck fear into the hearts of the Allies and all who would face it on the battlefield. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Panther: The Panzer V
Filmmakers and war historians take a closer look at the machine judged by many to be perhaps the best designed war tank of World War II in this documentary focusing on Germany's dreaded Panther (aka Panzer Mk. V). Upon encountering the Soviet's powerful T-34 tank while invading Russia in 1941, the German troops incorporated many of the T-34's design elements into their own Panzer tank. In addition to offering a revealing look at the Panther design, this release also offers abundant combat footage showcasing the feared war machine in action. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

German Military Vehicles
German Military Vehicles contains footage of the armored cars the Nazis utilized in order to provide reconnaissance before their powerful Panzer tanks rolled into an area. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Tiger - Heavy Tank Panzer VI
The documentary Tiger: Heavy Tank Panzer VI offers footage of these German military machines as they rolled through the major battlefields of World War II. The tank was, at the time, the heaviest vehicle of its time. The weapons, which weighed over fifty tons, offered limited mobility which hindered its usefulness in many areas. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Hummel - Mobile Heavy Artillery
Hummel: Mobile Heavy Artillery showcases some of the unusual weapons created by the Nazis during World War II. Some of these self-propelled artillery machines were designed based on the materials available to the builders, leading to some very unusual shapes and combinations of weapons. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
