Early in WWII, one of the RAF’s strategies for dealing with “The Blitz” from the Luftwaffe and their strategic bombing was “the cult of the offensive.”  To prevent German formations from hitting targets in Britain, the RAF’s Bomber Command would destroy the Luftwaffe forces on their own bases, aircraft in their factories, and fuel reserves by attacking oil plants. It didn’t exactly work, but it was in that spirit that YHC embarked on his maiden Q of the Blitz.  Three brave PAX and an Au Pair (clearly from the French resistance), armed with nothing but kettle bells and a dollar store flashlight, joined me for the rain-soaked offensive, while the huddling, trembling civilian PAX masses remained in their proverbial communal shelters.  Much like defence by offence, this workout and my flashlight didn’t exactly work, but there was no collapse of morale and we emerged from the gloom sharpened.
