Synopsis

THE SHIPS THAT FLEW

A glorious tribute to the golden era of flying boats that ended in 1974, The Ships That Flew draws on rare archival footage to captures the romance of these magnificent machines, including: the extraordinarily effective 'Flying Porcupine' used against the Luftwaffe in WWII, hard-working Catalinas and luxurious Solents that were the flagships of the tourism market.

HISTORY OF TANKS

The first tanks were produced from late 1914 by Great Britain and France to break the deadlock of trench warfare on the Western Front. Their first use was during the Battle of the Somme in 1916. Britain and France built thousands of tanks, while Germany only developed and bought into service 20 vehicles of a single design.

In this DVD, we look at the development of tanks throughout history including the German tank divison, Russian tanks & U.S. tank development.

We also look at tanks in the Cold War. While they would not only continue to be produced in huge numbers the technology advanced dramatically making them larger with thicker armour and generally much more effective.

This is a fascinating DVD not to be missed by those with an interest in military history and weapon development.
