20 November 1917
Battle of Cambrai – combined use of tanks, aircraft and artillery – major advance made on the Hindenburg Line. Some 476 tanks took part in the battle of which 179 were lost. The use of tanks meant that lines of barbed wire defences, previously a major hinderance to soldiers, did little to slow the tanks.
