Despite Hollywood renditions, not one specific implement of war can single-handedly win the battle. While the elite Panzer Divisions of the German forces were definitely weapons of mass destruction, they would have been stuck in their tracks if not for the heavy support of the German artillery and the Super Mortars of the Sturmartillere. Brought to video by Cromwell Productions, this documentary details the well-armored artillery presence that cleared a path for the German strikes into the hearts of Poland, Russia, and France. The video also highlights the development of such lethal tubes as the Wespe, the Hummel, and the pounding power of the Karl mortar.
