Description
Description: J. R. Dunn goes through the history of tanks used in the armed forces. He goes through to describe the declining usage of tanks given todays modern technology.

Summary
Summary: The appearance of the tank was a lesson in overlooking the obvious. Armored cars were widely manufactured and deployed in the decade previous to WW I. The first operational armored vehicle was an armored car used by the Imperial Russian government to break up riots in St. Petersburg during the revolution of 1905, nearly a full decade before war broke out. Throughout time, technology has improved military usage of different vehicles that help during battle.

Excerpt
Excerpt: Tanks were introduced at the front in 1916. The first engagements were unimpressive, distinguished as much by breakdowns as anything else. Churchill, already thinking in strategic terms, advised the Army staff to wait until a thousand or more were available. Instead they were thrown in haphazardly. Their first real success occurred at Cambrai on November 20, 1917, where tanks helped tear a twelve-mile breach in the German lines. Denied adequate support, British troops were unable to hold off a German counterattack and most of the captured ground was lost.
