Can he be truly objective given that he planned, fought in and won the battle by himself?

Second prize is two copies by the way.

Why is Kursk the greatest tank battle purely on the basis of tank numbers involved? We don't assess other battles purely on the basis of infantry numbers engaged. Please explain or I'll be forced to launch another defamatory thread calling for your euthanasia.

Not being a tight Scots bastard, I'll buy it if needs be.

As to the significance of the action - I'll see your Kursk and raise you the RTR at Arras - fewer numbers but greater in strategic effect. Arguably war-winning.

Typical Highland shyster - I've got to do all the work. Happily the RTR has the episode receipted and filed - nor were they peering down gun barrels to aim!

Multiple choice is too easy Auld-Yin. It took me 30 seconds to answer. Go back to the old method, it was much more fun.
Just wait until I put up the answers for the last 2 comps - see what people say about ease of questions then :)

Thanks Nomad.

Plenty of time for people to get their names down for this book. I realise that it did not feature in the Newsletter, but that is not a reason not to take part.

The questions are easy and the answers are on Google so let's see some more interest in this book which is a must for anyone with an interest in tank warfare, or indeed WW2 warfare.
