Description by

This is why they ground out as much as 90 miles a day, why they stopped only so supply lines could catch up, why they went muzzle to hellfire muzzle with the Panzer 88s. The ironbellies of the 3rd Armored Division have at last reached the enemy's homeland. They know they'll somehow cross the Dragon's Teeth of the Siegfried Line - and into a fierce tank/artillery battle.

After capturing the heroic Normandy invasion in Breakthrough, director Louis Seiler (Guadalcanal Diary) and producer Brian Foy reteamed for this fighting tale of GIs spearheading the World War II push across France. Young screen talents and actual wartime footage combine in this saga of thundering tanks and determined Yanks, from a story by the master of war movie realism, Samuel Fuller (The Big Red One).

Product Description:

Actual combat footage is deftly blended in with dramatized re-enactments in THE TANKS ARE COMING. Steve Cochran stars as Sergeant Sully, the hard-bitten new leader of an arrogant, fiercely independent tank platoon. Despite protests from his commanding officer and his men, Sully runs the platoon ragged, teaching them the value of humility and teamwork under fire. The sergeant's training methods pay off during the 3rd Armored Division's assault into France in the summer of 1944. Though Mari Aldon shows up briefly as a female war correspondent, TANKS ARE COMING is an essential all-male enterprise, featuring good performances by such dependable players as Philip Carey, Paul Picerni, Harry Bellaver, James Dobson and George O'Hanlon.
