Good teaser, this one burned a few braincells until I remembered WWII.

Bummer... didn't get it. I am good at geography so felt I should have been able to get this.

Studying history was very helpful indeed! ;)

I got "a", but only because I figured out something with the letter "a" in each word.
I'm not quite sure.
Here's how I saw it;;
The pattern went "A" once, "a" once, "a" twice, "a" once, "a" once.
And in set "a", [ besides it being "a", ] I got it because it was a shortened version of it;; "a" once, "a" twice, "a" once.
[ The "a" once or twice refers to how many times the letter show up in each word, by the way. ]

Ohsnap :]
I got that confused.
But basically, the code was "a" a certain amount of times to form a pattern, then set "a" was a shortened version of it.

Just forget what I said completely;; I re-read it again and realised that teh already highly confusing thing I wrote was incorrect, no matter what.
