Synopsis

Part of the documentary series examining the capabilities of the different types of tanks used by the Allied and German armies in the Second World War. This volume looks at the British Cromwell tank, the replacement heavy cruiser tank for the more vulnerable Crusader, that finally saw action in the Normandy fighting in 1944. With its powerful Rolls Royce engine, the Cromwell was fast and agile, and several thousand had been built by the end of the war. Includes expert analysis, rare archive footage, and computer graphic simulation to explore the Cromwell's capabilities.
