Under top secrecy in England during World War I, a team of women were employed to help create mobile water storage devices for the Middle East. They were actually building 'landships' but their nickname for these large steel machines, 'tank', has stuck. These British metal beasts became a fearsome modern weapon that stunned Germany in the Great War as they rolled out to battle on the Western Front.
