    I remember my Mother telling me that my Grandfather, who served in the 168th Infantry Regiment in France during WWI, only talked about two things from his WWI experience . One was that the soldiers had to stop marching in step when they came to a bridge and the other was that it bothered him that the boxcars they rode in had stenciled on the side "HOMMES 40 CHEVAUX 8". That eight horses were equal to forty men! He saw irony in that. I found this picture when searching for 40&8 Boxcars on the Internet which must be identical with his experience. Conn

    The Schleswig-Holstein Question -- Resolved The Schleswig-Holstein Question was a complex set of diplomatic and other issues arising in the 19th century from the relations of two duchies, Schleswig and Holstein to the Danish crown and to the German Confederation. The British statesman Lord Palmerston is reported to have said: “Only three people have ever really understood the Schleswig-Holstein business—the Prince Consort, who is dead—a German professor, who has gone mad—and I, who have forgotten all about it". The central question was whether the duchy of Schleswig was or was not an integral part of the dominions of the Danish crown, with which it had been associated in the Danish monarchy for centuries or whether Schleswig should, together with Holstein, become an independent part of the German Confederation. The Second Schleswig War in 1864 resolved the Schleswig–Holstein Question violently, by forcing the king of Denmark to renounce all his rights in the duchies in favour of Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria and King William I of Prussia. Currently, the "Irredentia" Party gained control of the Danish Parliament and secret preparations for reacquiring Schleswig began. Mission: Danish Armored Forces will cross the border and take back Schleswig. The main objectives will be the Towns of Husum and Schleswig. Initial resistance is expected to be light and the Armored columns are to rapidly seize the objectives and prepare for German counterattacks. Execution: 1st Brigade will advance rapidly down Highway A7 and seize Schleswig. 2nd Brigade will advance rapidly down Highway B5 and seize Husum. 3 Batteries of Artillery will be available. Each Mech Platoon has three Tow Missile Teams Each column will have a CSS platoon with Supply, Repair, and Medical. 120 minute time limit

    Excellent design. One platoon of tanks and a Marder platoon was easily managed by one person. One has to place his units in the most advantageous spots which in my case turned out to not work out so well. First tank had main gun damage and was out. Another was taken out by long range fire. Then the rest died. I had three user kills and the AI in tanks killed three more. Infantry accounted for two. But the enemy rolled right on through. Balance was good. With better unit placement, the results could have easily been different. I like single-player scenarios with not a lot of units. Good scenario!
  13. I had one of my most enjoyable Kanium missions. My platoon commander, Chrisreb, got an order to send one unit over to the middle area and I was selected and arrived just in time to help stop the enemy advance along Axis 2. Killing 4 BMP's and 2 T80's! Knowing that an artillery strike would be forthcoming, I moved south and was in position kill a T80 and immobilize another coming from Axis 32. Nike-Ajax asked if he could be my gunner when his tank was destroyed and he joined me. We then were ordered to a position just north of Gold. I was able to use the TIM to help scan for possible targets and was able to designate an approaching BMP to Nike-Ajax, which he destroyed. I then saw the heads of infantry pop up and advance toward us and designated those to Nike-Ajax, who promptly dispatched them with co-ax. This was a nail-biting mission and I was on the edge of my seat during the action. Excellent designed mission and with the human Opfor, was exciting. Using the Commanders TIM to designate targets to my gunner
