Apologies. I saw a documentary that had aerial reconnaissance photos showing suspected German armour hidden in the woods around the town. The photographs were reportedly taken a "few days" before the start of the operation, I will try to find some evidence of this on line and post a link.

comment What was the first successful mass tank battle of WW1?
The Germans didn't build many tanks during WWI so there are no examples of large tank v tank battles. The Germans built around 20 of their A7V tanks and also used around 50 captured allied tanks, but there's no record of any battle involving more than 3 German tanks as mentioned above.

comment Was “Blitzkrieg” at least partly intended for trapping the Jews?
The quick answer is that Blitzkrieg was designed to lead to a quick war and so avoid the deadlock of the trenches in the First World War. Even Hitler knew he couldn't win a long, drawn out war against superior industrial powers.

comment Why did the US drop nuclear bombs on a weakened Japan?
Part of the reason was to test the effects of such weapons. That's why they chose targets that were relatively untouched thus far.

Germany spent/wasted more money on the V2 project than the US did on the Manhatten Project.

comment Why did Canada, Australia and New Zealand separate from UK?
Australia may be a continent in geographical terms (although technically it isn't) but it only has a population around a third the size of England. Your argument is therefore flawed.
