This is the first of a two volume study on the origination, development, and operations of the French tanks; Schneiders, Saint-Chamonds, and Renault tanks.  This volume covers the early history and development processes, the bureaucratic issues, testing, technical problems and the early operations of these early fighting vehicles.  Its discussion of operations ends in June 1918 and it discusses every (and I mean every) action where French tanks were engaged is discussed, with supporting maps, identification of the armor units involved, most of the associated infantry units involved with those attacks are identified, and the objectives involved are identified.
