How Did The World's First Tanks Turn The Tide Of WW1? | Guy Martin's WW1 Tank | War Stories

On 15 September 1916 at Flers-Courcelette during the Battle of the Somme, Britain unveiled their secret weapon. A fleet of giant metal monsters swept over the battlefield and the world was introduced to the tank. In this documentary, Guy Martin looks at how this invention changed the course of the First World War.

Guy Martin also attempts to build a working replica of a World War One tank, pass his tank driving test and drive the machine at Lincoln's Remembrance Day parade.
