Life is a grindstone. Whether it grinds us down or polishes us up depends on us.Thomas L. Holdcroft
A tank is a fully-tracked, armoured combat vehicle (armoured fighting vehicle), designed primarily to destroy enemy ground forces by direct fire.
- "The finest tank in the world" - Field-Marshal Ewald von Kleist
- All you saw in your imagination was the muzzle of an 88 behind each leaf.
- British Tank Commander Andrew Wilson
- You need five of your tanks to destroy a single German one, but you always have six.
- A captured German tanker said to Allied soldiers
- The Tiger was the best tank and was particularly successful in heavy fighting.
- German Tank Commander Oberst Franz Bäke
- "If the tanks succeed, then victory follows."
