    Why do you wish he was killed? Did you eve consider if he was that a less capable general would have lost many more lives than he did? The Germans revered his military capability.

     

    (I never said anything about "heroes" in the opening post. My WW2 hero is Audie Murphy.)

    Babe,

    Fun thread!  I always appreciated the German Staff General heading to the weekend "kriegspiel" in the Longest Day. whose role was to play the allies, and predicted an invasion in Normandy.

    My friends and I used to play Fletcher Pratt's Naval Wargame with warship models we assembled and painted during summer vacations, then played on a pool table on rainy days, or out in the back yard when the sun was shining, using golf tees for splash marks.

    Later in life, I was involved in unit simulations and readiness tests while serving in Europe.

    One of the better computer games I enjoyed is Sega's Rome Total War.

    Someone needs to write a play for Broadway setting Xenophon's Anabasis in this decade.

    Since we were getting into a bit of WW2 discussion in the avatar thread I thought it might be interesting to take a break from arguing about the run game, defense and Brady's play with this topic.

    To start I'm wondering if any here have ever played what are called "conflict simulations", or "wargames". Avalon Hill, SPI and GDW to name a few published these historical simulation games. Computers have virtually eliminated these types of things, though they were a niche hobby anyway, even in their heyday.

    Anybody like military video games, such as: Company of Heroes, Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, Brothers in Arms, Battlefield etc.? (these aren't to be considered historical)

    Who is your favorite historical military figure? I'm a Patton admirer myself. I imagine there are many who are knowledgeable about his career.

    Not into the electronic stuff, but I like to play Risk. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain is probably my favorite military character. "The Warrior Poet" indeed. The once Bowdoin College Professor has a way of expressing things that is one of a kind.

    and how can we leave out Che? a true hero for every working class man.

    [/QUOTE]

    The Che who killed Cuban citizens because they were so called Deviants (gays). That Che?

    [/QUOTE]

    lol you may fill your empty skull with whatever false information you wish. Che was far more courageous and honorable than ANY military general in american history.

    [/QUOTE]

    Yeah, the eye witnesses and reporters who wrote books and  reported first hand accounts all lied. I got it. I didn't question his military ability but it seems you got awfully defensive about his how he dealt with so called prisoners. I guess all those first hand accounts and books written about him torturing and killing prisoners are all false.

    Great general perhaps I am not a military person. pitiful human most definately.

    [/QUOTE]

    Che was a piece of crap socialist. Enough said.
