Ah, evidently a man of excellent taste.

I first met "The Defence of Duffer's Drift" when a pal of mine was issued with a copy when he did a course at the Junior Division, the Staff College, Camberley (as it then was).

I believe it is still on the USMC Commandant's reading list. I do not think it will be out of date until people stop using weapons firing conoidal bullets on the battlefield, and possibly not even then.

All the best,

John.

Thanks a bunch for that link!

Edit: Here's a better link to "Defence of Duffer's Drift" http://www-cgsc.army.mil/carl/resources/csi/Swinton/Swinton.asp

I just read it and Iam very impressed. This is a great read. I like the way he points out the mistakes and how he leads you to the right solution.
