Now doesn't this look like fun

Grishnak sat mounted on his warg. Little did the Austrians in the village realise their days were numbered.......

The General's View in Wargaming

In wargaming, the general has an eagle's view of the battlefield, much like that shown on the banner image.
But what could generals really see?
Quite a lot when the troops were in close proximity ...

But not that much when the troops were on the attack

and even less when there were trees in the way

Cruel Wars in High Germany

O cursed were the cruel wars
That ever they should rise
And out of merry England
Press many a lad likewise!
They press'd young Harry from me,
Likewise my brothers three,
And sent them to the cruel wars
In High Germany.
