Re: My hopes are dashed

"Maxim may have been disappointed had he lived to find that artillery and disease were the greatest takers of life between 1914-1919."

Mostly because his gun made it impossible to infantry to be mobile in the way it had been, so they ended up in unsanitary trenches that they had to be blown out of.

Anyway, Maxim didn't care one way or the other as long as the royalties rolled in.
