Battalion Commanders in World War 1​

Several very interesting lectures here including some by Tim Cook on the Cdns.

This video is somewhat in the context of Montgomery 's methods while commanding South East Command in 1942 to get rid of Cdn CO's as:

They do a weekly zoom call on Mondays at 2000 hrs UK time (4PM Halifax) with a guest presenter and a Q&A Period afterwards that their membership can join.

I have joined...

Some fascinating history that they have turned up over the years.
