Summary
terminates "the great war of 1925" - a wonderful spectacle of modern warfare. After laying "doggo" for over 24 hours, Wessex tanks make dramatic attempt to hold up Mercia’s advancing army. Military attaches of all countries were keen critics. Mercia rushes up her guns in support. The final assault. Aeroplanes, smoke screens, tanks, all played their part - but it’s "the Infantry" that counts in the end. After 3 days under war conditions "1925’s Contemptibles" jauntily march and sing "Show me the way to go home".
