Men Against Tanks
Made in 1943 in order to help motivate the hard pressed German infantry to resist the increasing tide of Soviet armor. It is a remarkable film in many respects as it features a dramatized and highly realistic record of a Soviet attack on the German lines by T-34 tanks and provides a detailed summary of the potential defenses which the infantryman could use to defend against Soviet tanks.
