Folks,

can you recommend documentaries about WW2 vehicles - either a single vehicle covered, or a group of them perhaps?

I saw somewhere the Panzer 1-6 and Stug 3/4 documentaries mentioned, but am not sure if more exist...

Yesterday or discovery has one where people restore tanks. It's very good... lot of background to the machine as well as the insights of the restorers.

Tank Overhaul (restoration of many different tanks)

Top Ten (Battle tanks, small arms, etc, etc, the list is huge)

Fields of Armor (generalized but very good documentary)

Here's one that's fascinating, about a vehicle you perhaps may not have considered. It's < 30 minutes well spent:

I do wonder - does an "allied" equivalent of the German War Files exist in a form?

Or is there really no collection of documents on allied vehicle specifics and use?
