    Captain
    You rank in the 59th percentile as a Great War Historian
    Well Captain, I must say, you've done a good job answering these questions to the best of your knowledge and you've achieved a respectable officer's rating. There is though ample room for improvement however in-between the time you dispense your current knowledge on the topic to others.

    I assume this means I did well. :rolleyes: Considering the opinionated, misspelled questions, yeah, I did fine.

    Colonel
    You rank in the 70th percentile as a Great War Historian
    You've served admirably Colonel. While a General occasionally still talks down to you on the topic, you have a good deal of input and know-how on the subject of The Great War. Keep shooting for that star and you just might get it soldier.

    Look smart, soldier!

    General
    You rank in the 85th percentile as a Great War Historian
    General, you've performed outstandingly, and your country owes you great praise in being very informed on the First "Great War" to both mar and help shape the 20th century. Be sure to share it with your less informed constituents.


    I really suck at dates and years, anything involving numbers just get tossed out of my mind.

    I should get extra points for living as far away from the main action of World War I as it is possible to get.

    Jeez, what is with you lately with tests, chevalier? You think that a smart guy like you'd be able to pick one with better grammar too.

    I got 70th percentile, which is okay, considering all I know about World War I is from high school history. Bah, I'm going into Biology and English.

    Yeah, the grammar in that test is appalling.

    Actually I knew quite more then I thought I did about this. Guess I have my old German teacher to thank for this (He forced me to read about Keiser Wilhelm, Austria-Hungary, Hitler, etc. In bloody German! and on top of that, I had i private techer :/).

    I guess I should be grateful to my mother for all of her research into WWI.

    That is really a bad test. It offers simplistic rationalizations and is very poorly worded (and I'm ingoring the grammatical errors).

    I only got 49 %, and higher than only 2 % of people my age and gender. I hope my one cousin never hears how badly I sucked at the test...

    Colonel

    You rank in the 61th percentile as a Great War Historian

    You've served admirably Colonel. While a General occasionally still talks down to you on the topic, you have a good deal of input and know-how on the subject of The Great War. Keep shooting for that star and you just might get it soldier.


    Not bad for someone who last took history 14 years ago. :D

    35%, most was guessing though, so I likely would have gotten 0. Maybe I should read some history books.
