Some examples:

“…equal to the task of overpowering the numerically Teutons” should have been “…equal to the task of overpowering the numerically inferior Teutons.”

“If those two towns had been captured, the English would not be proclaiming victories…”should have been: “If those two towns had been captured, the English would be proclaiming victories…”

“Dieppo” should have been “Dieppe.” “Harve” should have been “(Le?) Havre.”

Etc.

Nonetheless, an interesting read.
