Topic: You mean


you mean war blunders? Well, the entire span of WWI. But really, this british general in the Bur War, that marched his company all night, only to discover he past hes objective. So he decided to compencate. He lined hes troops facing bhack to the Bur positions, and then had them charge backwards.....After the Burs managed to shake of the amazment of being "back-charged" at, they gunned the poor brits down...

My Favorite? When the British at islanwanda allowed their troops to run out of ammo...and the zulus matched spears and shields against bayonets.

The british died in their little defensive squares...almost 1400 of them.

if I had to pick a second blunder...Id have to say the battle of the crater at St Petersburg, Virgina. Imagine packing that much gunpowder under a confederate position,,,blowing it up...and then leading your men down into a hole that they couldnt climb out of, but the confederates could shoot into.

Big mistake.

Battle of New Orleans with the British doing a frontal assault on American troops entrenched on the beach and behind trees. While the British got off the boats the americans fired at them, then when the brits made there lines they attacked... 2,000 wounded/dead for British before getting back on there ships and sailing off. And 6 dead for the americans.

It was an F-16, at NIGHT, that dropped a "dumb" bomb on what the pilot thought were al-Qaida forces firing on him, but was in actuality Canadian troops and indigenous forces who were firing celebratory fire into the air. It was a tragedy, and not a laughing matter at all, Jtf2.
