Guernsey, Channel Islands, 1940: German troops marching along North Esplanade, St Peter Port. Invaded in June 1940, the Channel Islands were the only British territory to be occupied by the Germans during World War Two. The islands were seen as a stepping stone to the invasion of Britain proper.
The Panzer IV was the most common German tank of World War II, and its chassis was used as the basis for other combat vehicles such as tank destroyers, self-propelled artillery and antiaircraft artillery self-propelled. #worldwar2 #tanks
