Non, c'est non : Petit manuel d'autodéfense à l'usage de toutes les femmes qui en ont marre de se faire emmerder sans rien dire

Souvent nous ne savons pas remark réagir, remark dire non, et remark faire comprendre que, lorsque nous disons non, c'est non.

The General Staff realised a more radical solution was required to overcome the problems of the Centu­ rion .

The young tank crews of the 7th Armoured Brigade, which had spearheaded the way in all previous wars, particularly distinguished themselves.
