ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Marque I, an ironclad and armed vehicle developed for French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. Bolting off the battlefield before he got nabbed became a fixation with Napoleon as his all-conquering military career soured. The visionary Marque I anticipated by a century not only the tank but also, its carriage and wheels exquisitely disguised by court painters to blend in with the countryside, previewed the 20th century art of camouflage.
