The Valentines ploughed on, turrets traversed to watch the village, catching a glimpse now of the bigger T-34s racing towards it. A German gun somewhere in the village was working its deadly trade. At least two tanks had careened to a halt, burning. Closer now, and Ivanov could see the German infantry starting to run from the back of the village as the remaining Soviet tanks entered from the front. N ...
