‘Holding the Line’ to Taking Profits

I’ve recently had become intrigued in how previous wars were fought in the early years and even WWI. It was primarily a death wish for those who fought. If you made it, it was seen as a miracle. They just lined up and got after it. There wasn’t any strategy; it’s our guys vs. your […]
