Urville is an imaginary city, the product of Gilles Trehin a young french man suffering from Aspergers syndrome (autism)

He's been making drawings of Urville since 1984, and in 2006 a book was published covering his remarkable project.

Panzer Hotchkiss H35
A group of German infantry men passing abandoned H35's during the Battle of France 1940.
The quality of French armour came as a surprise to the German Army, but French armoured tactics were hopelessly outdated, making the tanks move at the pace of the infantry and not as a vanguard, spearheading the attacks (as the Germans did with their "Blitzkrieg" technique)
For years the French army had a strong advocate of modern armoured tactics but he was repeatedly ignored...it was Charles De Gaulle.
