FRENCH LANGAUGE BOOK: On this afternoon of May 16, 1940, a group of about twenty B tanks belonging to the French army, 32-ton machines each armed with a 75 gun and a 47 gun - which made from them the most powerful armoured material existing in the world in 1940 - made its approach on a small town which will soon go down in history: Montcornet. Since the day before, the enemy has broken through the front and opened a gigantic breach in the Allied system. Launched like children lost in the gap, the French battle tanks have a simple mission Destroy everything in your path, the fiery General Giraud simply told them. This feat of arms - which precedes Colonel de Gaulle famous action in the same locality by 24 hours, with tanks of the same type - is one of the many episodes that this book traces with rigorous accuracy and striking attention to detail, based on the direct testimonies of the combatants: the officers, non-commissioned officers and hunters of the 15th battle tank battalion, belonging to the 2nd armoured division.
