SUNDAY

The Largest Tank Battle in History?
Sunday 9 AM, 1 hr, Wheatland Room
Moderator: Dana Lombardy; Panel: Frank Chadwick, Col. David Glantz, John Hill and Pete Panzeri

From WWII to Desert Storm, which was the Largest Tank Battle in History? The numbers are there to count; but what constitutes a Tank Battle? What counts as a Tank? What counts as one battle? How many days over how many miles with how many formations can one engagement be counted as “The Largest Tank Battle in History”? Our panel of WWII subject-matter experts’ opinions may differ slightly. After a brief introduction, each will speak. Then for 30 minutes the panel, and then the audience will question each. Knowing the backgrounds of our panelists, this is something NOT to be missed!
