"Ordnance is Keystone of War Situation"

Title

"Ordnance is Keystone of War Situation"

Description

In the Knox Alumnus magazine, S.S. McClure provides his perspective on the pivotal significance of superior technology to eventual victory. McClure comes to the conclusion that "This war differs from all other wars in that victory can be achieved only by killing. In this war, you cannot surround and capture enemies, you cannot occupy the enemy's territory and bring about peace but whichever side is the best equipped and has the best morale that side will win the war."
