TooFatLardies Oddcast, Episode Two

The terrible trio took the advantage of a long drive to Crisis in Antwerp to discuss their hopes for the show and, the big issue of the show, their experiences walking battlefields and how that relates to their wargaming.
We apologise for the sound quality on this episode, but the discussion was recorded as we attempted to re-enter earth’s atmosphere somewhere just over Belgium.

Did you perhaps get a photo of that big, naked, one-eyed chap by the side of the road? No? Probably just as well ?

  5. Guys I’ve been reading a lot of ww2 books recently Max hasting, Anthony Beaver and Jonathon Dimbleby. Can you guys recommend a good book covering the British army in the Far East??

The Gauls: A Tactical Guide

Before the Romans met the Germans the big bad wolf of their history was the Gauls.  If the German raiding along the Rhine was bad, the Gauls had topped that by some distance by sacking Rome itself in 390 BC, or thereabout, when Brennus, the Gallic leader, coined the term ‘Vae Victis’. In their hatred

Talking Tactics, Part Seven

MOUT, FIBUA, OU, OBUA, all contemporary acronyms referring to the conducting of operations in an urban environment. But whilst “Military Operation in Urban Terrain”, “Fighting in Built Up Area” and so on do the job, nobody has yet to find a better term than the British Army’s colloquialism “Fish & Chips”; Fighting in Someone’s House

“Right chaps, listen up. At 0700 we’ll be crossing the Hun lines on an Offensive Patrol. It’s time Jerry got shaken up a bit and we’re going to hop across and give him a prod.” Captain Parker Knoll was keen that 266 Squadron kept the initiative that had gained in the past weeks. The squadron
