Slowed to a crawl due to a lot of union work, me being a Unite shop steward these days.

I've just come across this post and the sentence "Conventionally the attack of 9 Oct is described as rushed and so a departure from the formula that brought the victories of 20 & 26 Sept and 4 Oct." I assume this is from the Allied perspective?

I'd give you a B+, but I'm an easy grader. Good job!

Did a quick glean of my sources to get this to B class. An episode a little underwritten in English sources, I fear.
