The Strange Tanks Of D-Day
Today is the 72nd anniversary of the Allied landings in Normandy during World War II, a/k/a "D-Day." The BBC has an interesting article on some of the unusual equipment that went ashore that day, and the inventive man behind them. Although I was aware of Sherman tanks modified to "swim" or clear land mines, I did not know that they, along with some other tank variations, originated out of the mind of one man.
