How did tanks (just invented) play a part in WWI?

This is a tank on display from WWI.
One of the WWI tanks in action.

First time used in a military conflict. Also first appeared at the battle of flers covercellete in September 1916. Tanks increased mobility on the western front and broke the stalement of French warfare. the British sent 49 tankers into battle. They were very slow and couldn't go over 4 miles an hour. 72% allied tanks were destroyed in just 4 days. Only 8 tanks left after war. Using tanks in the war helped very much and it was very amazing of how they worked!
