The Battle of 73 Easting – The Most Intense Tank Battle In History

This was one of the and most likely last epic tank battle in the history of mankind. In this educational history video, we will take a look at what happened in the gulf war at the Battle of 73 Easting.

The end of America’s war in Vietnam saw a US military in crisis- its morale all but depleted and its combat expertise watered down by massive conscription. In the years that followed the Pentagon focused on restoring America’s military by returning to an all-volunteer force and addressing the problems of systemic drug abuse and a weak officer and non-commissioned officer corp. But just how well would America’s military fare in a new conflict after years of neglect and waste? Twenty years after Vietnam, the world would get to find out as America’s forces were immediately thrown into the last of the greatest tank battles of the 20th century. Hello and welcome to another episode of The Infographics Show- today we’re taking a look at the Battle of 73 Easting, and how America proved once more it was a force to be reckoned with.
