Rich Documentary About the History of Tanks (Watched Whole Season 1)
14 November 2018 | by JabbaTheHansSee all my reviews

Age of Tanks is a series composed of 4 episodes (about 50 minutes each). It delves into the early history of tanks, their impact on various major wars, political conflicts, and their possible role in an emerging era of more advanced warfare. It is very informative, appears to be minimally biased towards Americans, and tries its best to include other nations in the conversation (Iraq, Israel, Russia, Germany, etc).

However, the documentary features more of events that occurred in Europe, and some inclusion of Israel, Iraq, and Korea. It also failed to include tanks developed by other nations and tended to focus more on U.S., Russian, German, and French technology. Despite these limitations, it was still very enjoyable and informative.

If you love military and war history, this is a highly recommended series.
