'Dawn of the Machines' - DH2, tank and mules at the Battle of Flers - WW1 art print by Graham Turner Dawn of the Machines Ref: Gic-G309

On September 15th 1916 tanks went into action for the first time, across the devastated Somme battlefield at the battle of Flers. Many broke down or were knocked out, but a few managed to push forward well behind the German lines, demonstrating the potential of this new weapon.

Here, British infantrymen come across one of the curious machines stranded by the roadside as they advance to the front, meeting a mule team returning from delivering ammunition to help feed the artillery's insatiable appetite, while a Royal Flying Corps DeHavilland DH2 passes overhead.

Gicle Print published from an oil painting by Graham Turner.

Each print individually printed to order on very high quality heavyweight paper, and then signed on the border by the artist.
