Scorched Earth - Infantry Firepower (2000) [DVDRip (XviD)]
In many theatres of operation during World War Two, men did battle from afar. Bombs were dropped from the sky, torpedoes fizzed from submarines, long-range artillery rained shells, tanks blasted through cities. Many battles, however, were fought at closer quarters and it was here that the infantry looked to the power of small arms fire to gain the upper hand. This film compares and contrasts some of these weapons, highlighting their development and use by all armies involved in the war. The weapons under review include mortars, landmines, bazookas and hand grenades; some of the most feared instruments of war ever devised. Vivid graphics and animations illustrate the workings and capabilities of the weapons, together with interviews from Dr. Robin Clifton (Warwick University) and veterans who faced these armaments first hand.
