Synopsis by Alice Day
Although armored vehicles appeared early, they were not fully utilized until generals Rommel and Patton brought them to the forefront of World War II. The documentary Tanks: Monsters in Motion tells the history of these monstrous machines from their first introduction in World War I. Standard trench warfare gave way to a more mobile method of battle, as tanks pushed their way into a starring role as frightening, moving weapons. New technology enabled tanks to boost their deadly capabilities. This film discusses the increase in range and power of these developing weapons.
