New Technology

TanksTanks were introduced by Britain in 1916 during WWI. Tanks were used with airplanes and artilery to advance the frontline. Many countries like Germany, quickly built tanks to compete with Britain in WWI. Tanks had treds so could go over all terain but had trouble going over trenches so they had to lay out wood planks over the trenches. to advance the frontline.

"On the other hand it was known that the German line was thin and that their man-power had been attracted northwards by the long epic of the Passchendaele attack. There was a well-founded belief that the tanks would prove equal to the task of breaking the front, and sufficient infantry had been assembled to take advantage of any opening which might be made."-Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
