Rated TBC by the BBFC


A look at the story of the heavy artillery (and those who manned it) from the First World War through to the end of the Second. It focuses on the weaponry used in the war of attrition in the trenches of Belgium and France, the French 75, the British 25 pounder used at El Alamein, the fearsome German 88 that was designed as an anti-aircraft gun but found to be effective on the battlegrounds and the awesome massed guns and rocket-launchers of the Red Army.
