Stars and Stripes: 100 Years of Tanks

Stars and Stripes has posted a page devoted to “Tanks: from Novelty to Necessity in 100 years.”  The page is intended for those that are not particularly familiar with the topic so the information is pretty basic.  That said, it’s a very sharp looking page with some nice photos and videos.  Our favorite image in the article is this one from 1921 showing the US Tank Corps stationed at Camp Meade.
