German armor played a pivotal role in Operation Barbarossa, the Nazi attack on the Soviet Union in June of 1941. In this program we look at German tanks, their role, deployment and the tactics in the first critical weeks of the Nazi invasion. Time and again, German Panzer divisions led the breakthroughs through the Soviet lines of defense and made possible the stunning advances of German forces. This episode features rare archive film, informative 3-D graphics, new footage of surviving machines, and the views of some of the leading authorities on armored warfare, including David Fletcher of the Royal Tank Museum, German army veteran Gerry Majewski, and author and historian Bob Carruthers.

As a World War II buff and fan of German Armor, I was really looking forward to viewing this DVD.

What a disappointment. Granted, some of the historical footage is decent enough, but that's about it. Descriptions of the tanks (especially the Russian T34) are either incomplete or incorrect. For example, no distinction is made between the original T34 (with the 76mm main gun) and the upgunned version (T34/85) with its larger turret.

Worst of all, the DVD does not bring Operation Barbarossa to its conclusion. It ends at the first German retreat without so much as an explanation of what happened after that. Did the Germans win? Did the Russians? Of course we all know how things turned out, but you would never know that from this movie.

Save your money.
