Battle Of Cambrai

The German's Hindenburg Line, fortified by deep trenches and barbed wire, is considered unbreakable. But General Byng comes up with a strategy to storm the barricade with a barrage of tanks. It's risky - tanks are new technology, and so far, have a poor performance record on the field. Still, General Byng goes through with his plan. The tanks roll through the barricades, filling the trenches with planks so infantry can rush through. The charge is a success - the impenetrable Hindenburg Line is broken. Although the British later lose their ground, Byng's bold plan changes combat forever.

Battle Of Stalingrad

Seeking oil reserves, Hitler turns his attention to the Eastern Front with Russia. Nazi armies sweep through the Soviet Union, overtaking its citizens and troops. But at Stalingrad, Germans face a fierce and determined resistance. Rubble everywhere prevents German tanks from patrolling the streets. It all comes down to hand-to-hand combat, with soldiers creeping from house to house. Soldiers on both sides must fight brutal weather, starvation conditions, and sniper fire. But when the Soviets capture a German airstrip, the battle quickly turns to their favor. Hitler, once confident, suffers one of his worst defeats of World War II.
