Nice report, Robert, and a very well done table.

Nicely done. Thanks for posting.

Grandpa was in the AEF not far from there later in 1918. He never talked about the war with his family so I can only guess about his experiences, short as they probably were. I would like to wargame that part of the 100 days campaign though I suspect Grandpa's part would be very favorable to the German player.

There are three more pages added, providing additional historical context. First is the IR 140 account of the British tanks:


The war diary entry for 3rd (Light) Tank Battalion:
