INFANTRY DECIDES BATTLE
While there have been many discus

different brandies of an army, theio U
no doubt, according to a writer In the

Vmerian of September 5, that It Is the
nfantry that wins battles.

tho support of the field artillery, It l

portant arm is the Infantry, which in
practically every case must decide th
Until Issue. Tho cavalry may be the
first to be drawn Into a battle, and the
artillery may destroy the enemy's artil

Infantry has driven back the enemy'
Tho usual mod of advancing for the
Infantry is to deploy them in a lln
