This was sent to me by a longtime reader. The same guy responsible for this mess earlier in the year.
I just got a mild kick out of seeing another culture’s old jokes, and decided to share it. Also I leave for GenCon in the morning and need to pack still, so this saves me the effort of writing something.
Short analysis of WWII Tactics
Standard task – Attacking a hill defended by an enemy infantry company
Germany, early and mid-war:
An hour before sunrise a battalion of troops has breakfast and prepares to attack. At dawn the hill is softened by dive-bombers and battalion mortars, then infantry moves in, throws grenades, charges into the trenches. By afternoon the Germans have already built their own defensive positions on the hill.
