Vince Ellis Detroit Free Press Published 9:00 AM EST Nov 9, 2018 ATLANTA — The nightly barrages are still vivid. Under former coach Stan Van Gundy, opponents rained 3-pointers on the Detroit Pistons last season. But under first-year coach Dwane Casey, the Pistons are one of the best teams in the league at defending the 3-point line. There are several positives and negatives for the Pistons, who stand 5-5 and entered Thursday tied for seventh in the Eastern Conference standings. Blake Griffin is performing like a top-10 player.

The soldiers on both sides of the front line had little idea of the potential revolution brewing in Germany, the Kaiser’s imminent abdication and the resulting peace overtures being made to the Allies. This led rapidly to discussion between the military representatives of Britain, France and Germany, who agreed an Armistice that would end the fighting at 11am on November 11, 1914. Over the last four years, we have remembered the progress of the First World War from the optimism and patriotism of August 1914, through attrition and stalemate, to breakthrough and the Armistice. At every stage, we have commemorated the achievements and sacrifice of a generation of Yorkshire men and women who served in the war, from the regular soldiers and reservists who fought from the beginning, through the Pals battalions of Kitchener’s Army who endured the Somme, to the … [Read more...] about Brigadier Andrew Jackson: The Yorkshire Regiment and how it will remember the fallen this Armistice
