Hey, to be clear, I am not implying JP didn't fight in the AK - his biog states that he joined up at 17 and, among other things, worked for BIP (Bureau of Information and Propaganda). I have just not found anything to suggest he was an officer. In fact, oddly, I can find very little about his wartime career. Must drill into this further....

Absolutely Greg, will look great even if you have to use a bigger base, a nice diorama is worth it IMHO.

I recently read something about mounted French Spahis launching a charge against Germans in Tunisia in an attempt to (re)capture the bridge over the Medjerda River at Medjez. Unfortunately, they started their charge just as a flight of Stukas arrived. :(
I think I'd take the dice away from their CO at that point......

I think that American cavalry might have an advantage as scouts using this one:

Or the Japanese ones. My son had horse meat when we were in Japan last year, and absolutely enjoyed it.

(I stuck to something much safer, like fugu.)
