We can go as far back as America in the 18th century. But yes, the Boer war contributed greatly to operational changes in the 20th century army. Though such tactics were employed mainly in Africa until WW2 & bear a great similarity to post WW2 insurgency ops.

And yet the English couldn’t do anything to stop it until Gravelines, and even then that was less than decisive, they’d exhausted themselves so much, if Medina Sidonia’d had the stomach, he could have resumed station to cooperate with Parma.

Indicative of the hurried attempt to begin making the British presence in India appear or be philanthropic for the public at home rather than a giant business venture. Much of the Victorian boast of bettering the country via the Raj stems from this intent.

I’m 99% sure this is actually a photo from the KZN portion of Edward VIII’s tour of South Africa when he was Prince of Wales in 1925.

One of the many ways in which Dawkins, when he writes about religion, is as much a faith-based preacher as any of the creationists he so despises is his readiness to put the cart of what he wants to believe ahead of the horse of the actual evidence

To be honest, it should have been sufficient against the Russians. Ironically the very reforms that would later improve the the army and had been instituted barely a year or two before the war began, probably aided the organisational confusion. Thank goodness for the Minie.

Described at the time as a miracle. It was won by the Prussians being bogged down in the mud, being riddled with dysentery and the French having the best artillery in Europe.

Unbeknownst to the Norwegians the King of England (who loved lightning campaigns) had left the south coast, where the Normans had not appeared, & had raced north with his best & swiftest troops. Sigurdsson had know way of knowing & as such no way of preparing for the onslaught.

Sigurdsson played his campaign methodically. Crushing the northern earls & exacting tribute. His actions thereafter were those of a sensible commander who was at the mercy of events unknown to him.
