TANKS IN THE MEUSE-ARGONNE
Those rumbling little tanks go wabbling over the shell-torn grounds up to a stone house. You hear a crack, see a puff of smoke, and the stone house begins to crumble. A few more shots, and a few more Huns rush out with hands over their heads, and you can almost hear them yell "Kamerad." The house is down, prisoners captured and the little tanks wabble to the next victim.
