This can be an outstanding publication and his most sensible one.

I could have given it five stars with the exception of the break up infinitives, dangling participles,
references to the article of a sentence as "who" rather than "whom" and some other
grammatical blunders. commonly i might enable those slide as being picayune, yet as
a college of Pennsylvania guy, i believe i need to name out the previous editor of the
Harvard pink (not to say a Philadelphian who roots for the METS...oh the
humanity!).

I additionally famous just one contradiction - which I now cannot locate - relatively extraordinary for
this form of booklet.

Sample text

86 This major attack thus repelled, the British divisions were withdrawn from the line and replaced with French troops. 87 There had been a cost to this heroism. 88 Another nine officers had been wounded. This latter category included Pitt-Rivers, who had been wounded by German machine gun fire in the onslaught of the seventeenth. The bullet struck his left leg just below the knee, shattering the bone and ripping apart his muscles. It would take years for the wound to close, and his left leg and foot would never properly function again.

Refusing to negotiate, the management then brought in ‘scabs’ to replace the striking workers, but they were assaulted by the picketers, and workers at other mines soon joined the industrial action in solidarity. Smuts, by now serving in multiple positions that included the powerful combination of both minister of defence and minister of finance, was unable to negotiate an end to the strike and instead prepared to crush it with force. 61 The Royal Dragoons were soon sent to the centre of the emerging conflict in Johannesburg.

Rather than eventually joining the Grenadier Guards in which his grandfather had served, he later joined the 1st Royal Dragoons, a renowned and famous cavalry regiment that had distinguished itself at the Battle of Waterloo by capturing a French infantry division’s colours. His first choice unit had been the 9th Lancers, of which several relatives were members, but he was denied entry because he had not attended Sandhurst and had no real military experience. He joined the Royals as a 2nd Lieutenant and would be promoted to Lieutenant in 1913.
