Think you know everything about the tanks of WW2? Take this WW2 Tanks Quiz and find out if you are a real PRO.
Tanks played a vital role in WW2, from huge and mechanized offensives to ingeniously mobile defenses, there is absolutely no battlefront of WW2 where the tank was not present.
Created in the middle of WWI, its introduction to mass production meant the end of any hopes of victory for Imperial Germany and Kaizer Wilhelm II.
It is important to note that in WWI, the great majority of tanks were used for infantry support, they were not designed to be independent weapons.
This of course is going to change, especially to German High Officers with vision, like Heinz Guderian, who saw the decisive role of the tanks in future grand military operations.
It was the Germans, who made the decisive step from converting the tank from its minor infantry support role to the central and decisive role in the Blitzkrieg tactics.
On the other hand, the victors of WWI seemed to completely neglect the importance of this new weapon and most of them didn’t allocate enough resources, although there are some notable exceptions.
Not only that it shaped the course of history, but the introduction of tanks also meant that trench warfare had become obsolete, from now on, the army that possessed the most tanks on the battlefield will also have the upper hand.
After the end of WWII, unlike WWI, every nation on the Earth realized that you cannot be a Global Power or you could not defend yourself if you don’t possess a strong tank army.
The future of tank warfare on the battlefields of the world was forever secured and also it’s place in history.
