Volume 10, Issue 3 (#39) These Brave Fellows

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....

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.

Volume 11, Issue 1 (#41) Circle of Fire

A small town sitting astride an important crossroads, held by a very mixed bag of defenders in the middle of the worst winter in decades. Surrounded, greatly outnumbered, and subjected to almost constant attack. Bastogne? Not quite....

Volume 11, Issue 2 (#42) A Thunder upon the Land

When war started, it resembled something Frederick the Great would face, a “everyone against one country” conflict that saw Russia joined by Denmark/Norway and a Saxon-Poland-Lithuania combination, with others joining later, all seeking to take advantage of Sweden's 18-year old Charles XII—who was perceived to be weak and inexperienced. Like Frederick, he would parry multiple invasions and survive. Unlike Frederick, he would launch a serious invasion deep into Russia….

Volume 11, Issue 3 (#43) Islands of the Damned

No two conflicts show the breath and scope of warfare in the Pacific than the battle for Wake Island and the Invasion of Peleliu. Both campaigns tell a very similar story about the high price of hubris and the quality of courage.

Volume 11, Issue 4 (#44) Vercingetorix: The Twilight of the Gauls

There once was a Gaul who bore the title Vercingetorix ("supreme warlord"), and he bore the title so well that people today think of it as his name (which we do not know).

But then, no Gaul ever bore the title again....

Ever hear about the largest and most decisive battle of the Chinese Civil War? The one where the Mao's Reds broke the back of Chiang Kai-Shek's Nationalists, leading to Communist rule of the Chinese mainland. It was like Gettysburg....

46 - No Middle Ground

“I was wrong on everything. We shall have to withdraw on the Golan Heights...and hold on to the last bullet.”

-- Moshe Dayan, 1700 hours, Oct. 7, 1973

Most wargames come to us with a comfortable distance in time, covering events that happened long ago. We can explore the details in history books and commemorate the decades or even centuries that have passed since "the end of the war".
