I doubt the author requires any introductions but for those who may be living under a rock, The_Chieftain aka Nicholas Moran who’s as old as WoT itself, is an amateur historian and a well-seasoned tanker that started in the Irish Army and now currently serves in the US Army National Guard while also being the Director of Militaria Relations at Wargaming NA.
