Who Invented the First Tank?

Answer

The idea of the first tank was the brainchild of a British colonel; he noticed that only tractors with moving threads could get over the rough terrain and decided that one covered in armour would be perfect for combat. The first tank was called the 'little Willie', and was such a secret project that even the builders themselves did not know they were building a military vehicle. Tanks were first successfully used in battle in November 1917.
