    I think that's the point they were going for by doing this weekly, to give you a sense of just how much time was passing, and how much death and destruction was happening in that period.

    Our military sponsors a short radio program with a bit similar theme.
    Basically on every week from 2014 there's a few minute program detailing the achievements of some soldier during WW1 at about 100 years ago that week. Man, we gave out a lot of medals during WW1.

  17. I just got into this and managed to catch up about a quarter way, and I absolutely love it. Can't wait until I'm caught up all the way.

    I gotta say, Indy isn't a big fan of Conrad. Given that he was apparently highly respected as a military thinker, I have a hard time believing that he was really as dense as TGW seems determined to portray him as.
