  1. Great issue! I took it with me to Europe late summer and had the opportunity to visit the Battle of the Somme. My goal was to find the “tank monument” and i did! It is where tanks were first used in combat. Forrest would have counseled to wait and use tanks “en masse” or Git thar firstest with the mostest! I have a picture of the monument with me and this issue of Armchair General. I will be happy to send you the photo, but i am unable to determine how. let me know if you are interested.
