The concepts, origins and popular beliefs concerning and ultimately becoming the Bolo....

Some magazine covers of the time...These depict the prevailing private, military, and popular concepts of a "Land Battle Ship" at the time.Edit

Section headingEdit

"Bristling with secondary turrets and weapon ports,

the war machine looked to be a

battleship on tracks,

though no one could mistake it for being seaworthy.

It was a dreadnought whose design had been condensed to its most lethal form.

Losing its displacement and elegance,

'it gained terrible focus in all things that its enemies feared 'most:

firepower, maneuverability, and speed."
