Summary:
Eighty years ago a strange-looking vehicle lurched around the yard of Foster's Engineering works in Lincoln. 'Little Willie' was the world's first tank. TIMEWATCH has exclusive access to the latest research conducted by Dr Paul Harris of Sandhurst Military Academy. His book contradicts the traditional view that the Army - specifically Sir Ernest Swinton - was responsible for the tank.
