Abstract

The tank in World War I was an experiment in military strategy. As the fight for inches was a battle of attrition, there was an attempt to change the tide of battle by creating a mobile platform that could cross "No Man's Land." Unfortunately, like most new technologies in World War I, nobody was able to utilize it to its fullest potential. The poster takes a look into some of the different ways tanks were utilized during World War I.
