The battlefields of World War 1 were ripe for the entry of the combat tank. Armored cars and artillery could only get armies so far and, as the stalemate grew, soo too did the desire to break that stalemate. The tank was born through several initiatives by various countries but is namely attributed to the British and their work out of Bovington. The first tanks were not outright successes but they helped to secure the victory for the Allies and much tactical experience was gained in their usage during The Great War. By World War 2, the tank had already come a long way and it would be the fighting here that would spark a new revolution in tanks - the Main Battle Tank.
