    Cavalry Combat at Night is an exact duplicate of another article you offered earlier.

    Yes. The information in the article “Cavalry Combat at Night” was later printed in the October 1942 issue of the Intelligence Bulletin.

    You should provide more information on the Red Army and the Great Patriotic War, but not from the communist standpoint.
