i didnt distort #, i got that from a british site i believe WHY WOULD I WASTE TIME DISTORTING BNUMBERS MY HEAD HURTS JUST LOOKING AT ALL OF THAT,
so devil: "you wanna know why u lost so many men that day?
its because your "great military planners sent you tanks in 10 miles out to sea instead of 5.
also you didnt want our anti mine tanks. which slowed u down quite a bit.
also so what you had more men ? your 6 times as big as us.
we were better trained and lasted longer. ""
so what we had more men, what the fk, UR THE WON THAT STARTED THIS , im not trying to braga bout who had more men, ur trying to make a big stink about
it and defending ur british honor or whatever, i madea statement and u go on , so i get the facts from a british site, dont patronize me about mine
tanks and bs, i dont give a rats a hole ok? im telling u what i found and u were wrong, i dont care about who died more or what idiot general did what
to whose tanks, OK? and back to the first statement, all that stuff i got from ww1 was from a BRITISH site, go check it out urself, dont hit me with
paragrpahs of crap, i dont have the strength to read it, iw as jus in a hurricane which is why im replying so late, anyway.. this statement : The
British Army had 1.6 million men wounded during the First World War. Approximately 662,000 were killed and another 140,000 were recorded as missing,
presumed dead. was not a continuation from the last sentence, it was as of the end of the war... i believe
by the end of 1915, nearly 2.5 million men had enlisted, many into ‘Pals’ Battalions, organised on a local basis THE END OF 1915! i said 1916, there
is a slight diffference in the web page, jesus my site said by JAN 1916 GET A GRIP its two different websites! god.
""On battlefields dominated by the defensive power of artillery, barbed wire and the machine gun casualties were enormous and in January 1916, to
maintain the size of the Army, the government introduced conscription with the Military Service Act.""
"" In 1918 the British Army was actually smaller than in 1917 ""
i didnt distort cr@p funny how its a british only site and it doesnt meantion the americans at all who had BUT By July 1918 there were over a million
US soldiers in France. General John Pershing deployed US troops to help the French defend the Western Front during the 3rd Battle of the Aisne in May
and at the Marne in June. US troops also took part in the Allied attacks at Le Hamel and Canal du Nord before Pershing launched his own offensive at
St Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne.
More than 2 million troops eventually reached Europe but a large number arrived too late to see any action. so a large number of the total of 2
million didnt see battle but by 1918 in july there was already over a million troops there fighting, so maybe of the ones that arrived after july
1918, when there was a million already to 1918 they didint see battle. the usa was in the battles in Le Hamel , Canal du Nord and american
offensives at St Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne! according to YOU: """Operation MICHAEL""" was the Big butt battle that destroyed Germany!? and it had
no american aid, but look at this::: """Following the successful Amiens and Albert offensives Marshal Ferdinand Foch decided to order an attack at
Meuse-Argonne in an attempt to cut-off the entire German Second Army. General John Pershing was given overall command of the operation and American
Expeditionary Force (AEF) was given the main attacking role. Colonel George Marshall, had the difficult task of bringing 400,000 troops from the
successful St Mihiel campaign to take part in the Meuse-Argonne offensive on 26th September, 1918.
The US First Army, led by General Hunter Liggett, used more than 300 tanks in the offensive. The advance was supported by General William Mitchell and
500 aircraft from the United States Air Service. Two-thirds of the soldiers involved in the advance had just arrived from St Mihiel and the exhausted
troops only advanced 3km along a 64km front on the first day. Progress remained slow and the offensive eventually came to a halt on 30th September.
The Meuse-Argonne offensive was resumed on 4th October. The German Army, many suffering from the influenza epidemic, held on until 4th November when
they began to retreat. Fresh US troops were moved to the front and had advanced 32km when the Armistice was announced.""" so it seems it was the
usa and france involved in the demise of Germany! AND LOOK AT THAT : The AEF was given the main attacking role. WOW!!!!!!!!!!
