A German manual on tank tactics refers to the special use of flame-throwers on tanks. Usually
they are employed at the halt during an advance by bounds.
Their chief use is to get at any enemy among rocks, in cellars, in dug-outs, in solidly
built buildings, in wooded areas, and generally in places not accessible to tanks, and
against which gun fire is of little use. The flame-thrower is also used for rapid "cleaning up" of
trenches and dug-in positions. The flame-throwing tank must approach to
within 50 or 60 yards of the target.
