[edit] Information

Among America's battle-scarred tank units, the 3rd Armored Division is remembered as first among equals. The 3rd earned its reputation as the 'Spearhead Division' in WWII, when it led Allied Forces into the heart of Germany. During the tension-filled decades of the Cold War, the 3rd Armored stood eyeball to eyeball with the Soviet Union. In the Gulf War, this specialized tank unit overpowered Iraqi armor. From Elvis Presley to Colin Powell, the 3rd has always been on the front lines of history. The U.S. Army's 3rd Armored Division led Allied forces into the heart of Nazi Germany during World War II. They formed the front line in the decades-long Cold War standoff with the Soviet Union. And they devastated the vaunted Iraqi Republican Guard at every turn during the Gulf War. ROLLING THUNDER tells the stirring story of the famed division through extensive interviews with veterans, current soldiers and military historians, along with footage of engagements and exercises from World War II to Gulf War. General John S. Brown of the U.S. Army Center for Military History helps outline the division's long, proud history, Colonels Dan Merritt and William J. Taylor reveal what it was like in the Division during the Cold War, and Colonel Kelly F. Fisk recalls his battles against Saddam's forces in the Gulf War. And soldiers offer an insider's view of what life was like in the modern 3rd Armored, and how they were adjusting to the reforms sweeping the military. This 2-hour History Channel special covers the story of Division from 1941 to its deactivation in 1992. Produced by Greystone Communications, Inc. for The History Channel
