09 Oct

Chris Johns is a badged battlefield guide, a volunteer at the National Memorial Arboretum, and deputy chair of Birmingham WFA. He is author of A Hundred Years on: The Great War and Other Events on Cannock Chase.

Most know about the British development of the tank but did the Germans have tanks? If not why not and if so how did they develop? A look at the development of fighting armoured vehicles particularly from the German perspective and the only serious German attempt to use them on the battlefield – Villers-Bretonneux 23rd-24th April 1918 - with surprisingly successful initial results.
