The History of tanks in four episodes:
Episode 1: Iron, Iron Everywhere
We discover the origins of tanks at the beginning of the 20th century and see as the first ones are built and used during World War I.
Episode 2: Blitzkrieg
After World War I, Germany and the Soviet Union band together to develop new tanks, only to face each other in an even bigger war: World War II.
Episode 3: A World in Chains
During the Cold War, tanks become the ultimate symbol and tool of oppression.
Episode 4: Twilight of the Tanks
With the collapse of the Eastern Bloc, tanks seem to have lost their purpose, until in 2014, a new tank arms race begins.
Creating a documentary about tanks that went beyond the mere technical and into the reality of what it was like to invent, build, fight and die in tanks was a unique challenge.
During the making of “Age of Tanks” I got to hear from many unique individuals, either in person or through the diaries and letters they left behind, and discovered so many stories I would never have thought possible before.
