Rut Roh

We have Wingate and Bradley. Does that mean I have to do 'e' and 'y'?

Okay, how about:

Major-General Eizo Yamada

Japanese general from World War II.

That makes the next person have 'a' to use.

Joichii Tomanaga - Japanese Flight Leader who lead the attacks at Midway. He took off with a plane he knew wouldn't have enough gas to return due to unrepaired battle damage.

Toast :toast: to a brave warrior even if he fought for the enemy.

Cheers!

"Admiral Charles A Lockwood commanded the Pacific sub force from Hawaii.

That means I get 'd' and I will bring forward my favorite French Marshall.

Louis Davout

The Iron Marshal
Prince of Eckmuhl
Duke of Auerstadt
1770-1823

At Austerlitz, he was the anvil upon which Bonaparte pulverised the Russians and Austrians, but it was in 1806 at Auerstadt that he showed his true brilliance.

His single corps of around 26,000 battled the main Prussian army of at least 50,000 men to a standstill and then on to sweep them from the field in one of the greatest military displays in history.

That sends a 't' to the next in line.
