In 1944, David Render - who was only 19 at the time - had what can only be described as a life changing experience when he landed on the Normandy beaches on D-Day as part of the A Squadron, 8th Armoured Brigade. This was to be the start of a journey that would take him right across Europe into the heartland of Germany as a frontline tank-driver. He came close to death in numerous tank battles; in one battle, he changed tanks three times as the other two were taken out of action by enemy fire.
In the first mini documentary, David tells a story about the most dangerous of all killers - the sniper, and how they were responsible for many of the tank commandersâ€™ deaths. David explains how he and his team dealt with them face to face.
