In the fall of 1952, Captain Liddell Hart undertook a speaking tour of the United States that included several days at the Armor Center, Fort Knox, KY. At that time, W. Russell Todd (later Norwich University president) was assigned as his escort officer and accompanied him on visits, discussions, and talks at the Armor Center. While there, Captain Liddell Hart gave Todd his basic notes, some of which were handwritten. President Todd had them copied and delivered to the Armor School library and also kept a copy, represented in this collection. The typescript consists of 21 chapters (or tabs).
