War: The Archive Collection
Seemingly present whenever German combat cameramen were filming, armored cars and half tracks were as vital to the German war machine as the Panzers.
Designed for the vital role of reconnaissance, they ranged ahead of the advancing Panzer spearheads to assess enemy strengths and intentions.

This programme covers all these vehicles and includes rare footage of the late war 'Puma' armored car in Normandy.
