33 - Meatgrinder

Volume 9, Issue 1 (#33) Meatgrinder

Two years after the last US troops left Vietnam, People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN) General Van Tien Dung launched Operation 275, a "limited" offensive designed to set up an attack on the provincial capital of Pleiko.

Rapid collapse of South Vietnamese (ARVN) forces caused a change in plan, with PAVN forces quickly taking one city after another, pausing only before an attack on Saigon itself. Based on previous performance, when three full PAVN divisions, supported by tanks and ample artillery, attacked one depleted ARVN division at Xuan Loc, Dung expected a cake walk.

What he got was a Meatgrinder instead....

Volume 9, Issue 2 (#34) Right Fierce & Terrible

Most people think of the 100 Years War as a battle over the geography and dynastic questions of who would rule which parts of France.

Known for its sieges, sackings, lots of misery, a few large battles like Crecy and Agincourt, and famous leaders like the Black Prince and Joan of Arc. But naval battles?

Volume 9, Issue 4 (#36) Defeat into Victory

Defeat into Victory is a game on the fighting for control of the Indian Frontier and Burma in 1944 and 1945. In early 1942, the Japanese overran the British colony following the capture of Malaya and the fall of the Singapore fortress in a campaign that took them to the Indian frontier. The theater became a backwater as events elsewhere in the world war took increasing attention and resources from both combatants.

In March, 1919, a man on a black horse led 120 officers through Brandenburg Gate, wearing tattered tropical uniforms, on the only “victory” parade German troops would have after WWI. He was Paul Emil von Lettow-Vorbeck, who kept tens of thousands of Commonwealth troops chasing him around East Africa instead of helping out on the Western Front....

In 1805, with the French juggernaut pouring across Austria and advancing down on both sides of the Danube river towards Vienna, Napoleon formed a small provisional corps under Marshal Adolphe Mortier, the tallest man in the French Marshalate, to sweep along the northern bank while being supported by the large cavalry corps of Marshal Joachim Murat.

Defending Russian Marshal Mikhail Kutuzov had enough information to realize that the French had blundered badly and set a trap....

Volume 10, Issue 4 (#40) Lilliburlero

The Battle of the Boyne might be considered the last battle of the English Civil War—a conflict that had spilled into both Scotland and Ireland along the way.

The Battle of Boyne might also be considered a key transition point in military technology…the last of the matchlocks and pikes and first of the flintlocks, a final time when cavalry caracole competed with pressing home a charge.
