Battle tanks decided many battles during WW2.
Some 25,000 were produced in Germany and some 250,000 by the Allies during the conflict.
Yet despite overwhelming odds, the German Panzer Divisions became legendary.
Just as a cavalryman becomes attached to his horse, the Panzer Truppe still vividly recall their mechanical mounts,
the sounds they produced, the smell of fuel and oil, the effects that they had on the enemy and
also the fact that their Panzer could become a sealed steel coffin in one blazing moment.
