100 years on from the Battle of Cambrai, The Tank Museum presents a 3 part documentary on the moment the Tank Corps delivered one of the greatest advances of the First World War.
In Part 2, Curator David Willey explains how the Tank Corps would finally get the opportunity they had been waiting for, as planning for the next offensive began at Cambrai. Ingenuity and inspirational leadership would be essential to get them through the formidable defences of the Hindenburg Line.
As the regimental museum of the Royal Tank Regiment, The Tank Museum is using the World War One centenary to draw attention to the struggle, sacrifice and ingenuity of the early tank men.
