The world has just a few weeks to avert a dangerous slowdown in the global economy. The United states has threatened to impose even higher tariffs on China if the world's top two economies can't do a deal on trade by March 1. And the United Kingdom and the European Union must find a solution to current Brexit deadlock by March 29. Depending on what happens, the global economy could shake off a recent slump or slide toward a recession.

British and other Commonwealth armies were the first to use the Light Tank M3, as the "General Stuart", in combat. From mid-November 1941 to the end of the year, about 170 Stuarts (in a total force of over 700 tanks) took part in Operation Crusader during the North Africa Campaign, with poor results. This is despite the fact that the M3 was superior or comparable in most regards to most of the tanks used by the Axis forces.
📌 The principle of SURPRISE :
👉 Accomplish your purpose before your ennemy can react effectively. |
👉 Surprise is a most effective and powerful weapon in war, and it can decisively shift the balance of combat power. |
👉 With surprise, success out of proportion to the energy exerted can be achieved. |
👉 Surprise results from striking the enemy at a time and place for which he is not fully prepared. |
👉 Speed, cover, deception, effective intelligence, effective counterintelligence, variations in tactics, and variations in methods of operations are the factors that contribute to the game of surprise. |
👉 Surprise is an absolutely indispensable principle of victory in warfare. |
👉 If the actions of the attacking commander are not conducted in complete secrecy, the opposing commander will anticipate where the attack is going to occur and prepare against it, often turning the tables to the attacker. |
