Braunschweig – An After Action Report Part VI

'This plan would leave open the southern flank of the peninsula. And it would require sufficient time to evolve, leaving more than enough turns for the German forces around T’bilisi to make their way down to relieve their trapped comrades. There is also the possibility that my forces in the mountains are discovered before the main German raiding party is far enough south to fall into my trap.'

Braunschweig – An After Action Report Part V

'The northern offensive crushes forward, chewing on the Germans and Italians and Rumanians. From what I can see, German battalions hold the western end of the front.

The Flower of Remembrance

McCrae's poem had a huge impact on two women, Anna E. Guerin of France and Georgia native Moina Michael. Both worked hard to initiate the sale of artificial poppies to help orphans and others left destitute by the war. By the time Guerin established the first sale in the U.S., in 1920 with the help of the American Legion, the poppy was well known in the allied countries ‧ America, Britain, France, Canada, Australia and New Zealand ‧ as the 'Flower of Remembrance.'

Bonus Game: The Battle of Guilford Courthouse

The Battle of Guilford Courthouse occupies a unique place in American history. It is one of the least well known, yet most influential battles, ever fought by our soldiers. Nathan Greene's tactical defeat in the bare woods and muddy fields of North Carolina heralded a strategic triumph that would eventually lead to Cornwallis's retreat, encirclement, and surrender at Yorktown—an event that signaled the end of armed conflict in the freshly born United States of America.
