Battle of Cambrai
The Battle of Cambrai was noted for being the first large scale battle that used tanks offensively. On November 20, 1917 a British force of nine infantry divisions, five cavarly divisions, and three tanks brigades sprung a surprise attack near Cambrai, France. The British tanks broke through the German defense, but the cavarly where slow to push through. On November 30, the Germans counterattacked and reclaimed most of the soil forfeited to the British. On December 7, the battle was concluded that tanks will forever change the future of war.
