  1. Hilarious! Just a scuffle. And of course France just wanted to give up.
    This is why I don't need a Facebook account - you just keep posting the best stuff anyway.

    1. I can think think of wars in which the losers won the last battle:
      Napoleonic (Davout clobbered the Prussians at the gates of Paris AFTER Waterloo); War of 1812 (What was left of Pakenham's army after New Orleans travelled east along the coast and captured a fort after a bit of a fight); American Civil War (Palmito Ranch, a month after Appomattox. Of course, the fact that both sides could be counted in a handful of hundreds made no difference to the overall result!).

  27. The certainties, of course, are death and taxes. In historical terms the latter often causes the former. A very funny, interesting and thought provoking post. Thanks.
