If one thinks about the challenge of trench warfare, it resided in the inability to cross “no man’s land.”  Both sides had an equal propensity to stop the other one because each time the area was crossed, machine gun fire was waiting.  The invention of the tank solved this problem.  Being made of armor and material where bullets from machine guns simply “plinked” off its side allowed for troops to cross “no man’s land” and overrun the trenches.  At the same time, it also allowed for soldiers to follow it behind, helping to overrun the enemy, subsuming no man’s land.  Finally, the tank’s shells could be aimed at trench areas, causing them to be servely undermined.
