The origins of what may develop into the German normal employees of the overdue nineteenth and twentieth centuries - essentially the most specialist army computer on this planet - should be traced to the Prussian military of the French progressive (1792-1802) and Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815). This concise examine, concluding the author's sequence of 5 titles at the Prussian military of 1792–1815, covers the employees; the reforms in tactical employment of all-arms brigades (which, opposite to bought opinion, pre-dated the failures of Jena and Auerstedt in 1806); the artillery and different technical troops; and regimental colors and criteria.

'This is an appalling number inasmuch as .. the ma jority of the tanks are new. The casualties are due almost entirely to defects in design . We view with the gravest concern the apparent inability of the Vauxhall Company to remedy design defects. Previous promises given to the Tank Board were to the effect that by the end of March, a Churchill battleworthy in all respects would be produced.

The War Office Maintenance Department cannot be expected to (nor are they designed to) deal with a fleet of tanks which break down for design reasons almost as soon as we receive them. ' The next day Geoffrey Burton passed these comments on, in somewhat milder terms , to Mr C J Bartlett of Vauxhall. On the 23 rd a meeting of the Tank Board announced that no further orders would be accepted for Churchill tanks until a satisfactory reply had been receive d from Mr Bartle tt.
