Bit thin on the German side but there aren't many sources for them

B now but only because I've exhausted the exiguous number of sources.

Only Passchendaele Ridge to go and then I can rewrite all the 3rd Ypres articles in time for 31 July....

It's a B now but I need Denman's book on the 16th (Irish) Division to do it justice.

Still procrastinating over The Night action of 1/2 December 1917, Lo Cicero's PhD is quite poorly written and laid out despite the wealth of detail, which is quite off-putting but I'll have to man it out to finish it before 31 July. I'm serving a 36 hour ban from editing after falling foul of a caucus cum cabal that censors edits on current events which show some independence from the corp-0-rat media line. Considering that I've been editing since 2006, I'm surprised that It's taken this long.

Well, sort of; after a rest I'm going back to the Passchendaele Ridge article to have it done by 31 July.

Not finished because Lo Cicero's prose in his PhD is a bit shite and I'm still ploughing through it.

Doing the 22 August one now. I've been under the impression that the second half of August is unjustly underwritten for a few years but there are only short pieces in the literature and the odd allusion elsewhere, [i]Der Weltkrieg[/i] seems a dead loss too. If anyone has suggestions I'm agog. I hope [i]The Passchendaele Campaign 1917[/i] by Andrew Rawson is better than [i]Passchendaele: A New History[/i] by Nick Lloyd which was a monumental disappointment. I want to get done what can be done by 31 July though.
