Black Baron - German Tank Commander WWII



Michael Wittman was a famous German tank commander of WWII, known as the Black Baron. He earned himself an awesome reputation with his famous ambush of the British 7th Armoured Division in 1944 when the allies began to push east after the D-day invasion.
The SS commander had already won ferocious awe and respect, but his breath taking dare with a single Tiger Tank would echo in eternity. The Black Baron launched an ambush upon an advancing British column on the 13th June 1944 at Villers-Bocage in France.
Inside a single Tiger IV tank, the Black Baron commanded his tank crew to attack and destroy fourteen British tanks and fifteen personnel carriers, also two anti-tank guns.
