South of Villers-Bretonneux,
France, 24 April 1918:
As Ludendorff’s operation Georgette bogged in the north he
determined to make a final thrust at Amiens in the south. To
achieve surprise, he committed 13 tanks. At dawn on April 24th
these machines lumbered forward over a barren landscape with infantry
close behind. In their wake, Britain’s 173rd Brigade gave
way, Ludendorff’s thrust advanced almost 4,000 yards before
the allies offered effective resistance. As ordered, the three
tanks of Captain Brown’s, No. 1 section, A Co., 1st Battalion
rolled to the Catchy Switch line south of Villiers-Bretonneux.
Enroute, English infantry warned that “Jerry Tanks”
were about. Minutes latter, Brown’s MIVs spotted three German
A7Vs at 300 yards. Euphoric Lt. Mitchell, commanding the key
MIV, later wrote, “for the first time in history tank was
encountering tank”. Almost immediately, the Germans pounded
Brown’s two female (machine gun armed) MIVs. Apparently,
they could not discern the single male tank, armed with two 6
pounders, commanded by Lieutenant Mitchell. Under pressure the
two female MIVs withdrew. Mitchell’s male fired three 57mm
rounds into an A7V, the German machine billowed smoke as half
of the crew escaped. Then Mitchell raked the German infantry.
To his astonishment, the other two A7Vs withdrew! Having silenced
the English infantry’s machine guns as ordered, they broke
off, unaware that Mitchell’s MIV was even there. Mitchell
was twice lucky, a short while latter German shell fire disabled
his machine without harming him.
