Creighton Abrams: War


Gen. Creighton W. Abrams, Jr. (1916-1974)

Gen. Abrams would have turned 99 this coming Sunday.  One of his quips (“When eating an elephant take one bite at a time.”) provided the title for our second book of Quip-Find puzzles.*  Today’s puzzle features another Abrams quotation, reflecting on the nature of military combat.

(Note: The puzzle involves a wraparound or “hidden adjacency”; I is adjacent to T (on the hidden back side of the Quipto rack), even though the two letters do not appear to be adjacent.)

*Both books are still available:  When Eating an Elephant, $9.95 — go to; Never Play Leapfrog with a Unicorn, $5.95, go to
