I highly doubt it's true as it would involve French soldiers not immediately drinking looted wine.
Skot the Sanguine said:Also some tanks of the pre-war period were quite light in armor, so pelting the tank with many rounds might actually have a real effect. In WW1 it was known that even small arms could cause metal splinters to fly around on the inside of the tank from impacts on the outside (which was the reason why British tankers wore those odd maille visored helmets). It is possible that even in 1938 this was still a valid tactic on some of the lighter tanks (like the Panzer I and maybe Panzer II).

Bluehawk said:I remember a factoid years ago that if only a fraction of the ordinance dropped on Germany's heavy industry had been directed at electrical power production, it would've crippled most industry by extension. I don't know how to begin assessing the truth of that though.
