The Canadians used innovative tactics that involved educating every soldier down to the smallest details of the attack.
So, I was struck by Russell Wangersky’s column, “No nation is born on the battlefield” in The Citizen-Record April 12, 2017.
I wholeheartedly agree with him and I was delighted to see in print his reasoning that there are “many more important measures” in what “builds a country” than success in battle.
He listed: sharing among disparate parts of the country, education for all, “an involved and active electorate”, the goal of safe drinking water, “fair access to medical care”, disaster relief worldwide.
I was very impressed.
