September 15 marks the birth of one of the greatest tank commanders in United States history. 97 years ago on this date, Creighton Abrams was born into the world. At the age of 27, Abrams saw himself thrust into the thick of World War II -- quickly rising in the ranks and becoming one of the most respected tank commanders in any division of the United States Army. Even George S. Patton, one of the most celebrated tank commanders, considered Abrams an equal in skill.
To honor Creighton Abrams' birth, World of Tanks players have an opportunity to participate in a number of events over the course of the weekend.
On September 15, 2011 we will hold a Twitter quiz on the World of Tanks NA Twitter account. Questions will focus on the life of Creighton Abrams.
From September 16, 2011 through September 18, 2011 World of Tanks players will enjoy in-game specials tailored to Creighton Abrams' career.
From September 16, 2011 through September 18, 2011 World of Tanks players will be able to participate in a special "Kill the Mod" event designed around the Battle of Arracourt.
