GUEST,Musket curious BS: Armistice Day (debate) (777* d) RE: BS: Armistice Day (debate) 21 Nov 13


There are few who would disagree that by four years of callous disregard for troops causing the headache of sending too many telegrams to wives and mothers, that by 1918 tactics were being altered.

If the value of the lives of soldiers had been higher in 1914, that point could have been reached a few years earlier.

You are grasping at straws again. You seem determined to sanitise the lessons society is trying to learn. You are a stupid little man who would stifle debate into what military leaders must do in order to protect lives.

Luckily, the MoD is a learning organisation and studying mistakes of the past is lesson 101 for wannabe command officers. As Taylor notes, the command officers of WW2 had been the junior officers of WW1 and therefore put a higher regard on the lives of those they were responsible for.

You just don't understand what "Lest we forget" entails, do you?
