Not necessarily a parallel, in fact, I don't really know what I wanted to say...I'm getting really dumb. Saying I should have in mind: speech is silver, silence is gold - or - Tis better be silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt. Tongue

I really suggest you all watch the fabulous documentary

The Fog of War

won the 2003 Best Documentary at the Academy Awards


Truly a excellent firsthand account. Whether you agree with the man or not, he does speak alot of truth.

"Hvor fattige var de ikke, disse fiskere som levde av havets nåde! De slet sig gjennom livet uten å se sig om til høire eller til venstre. Deres gleder var få, deres bekymringer mange. Men de hadde allikevel et gemyttlig smil til den fremmede, en munter vise og en lun historie. For sånn er de, disse Sørlandets barn."

I just finished yet another soldiers story. This one, "Pacific Alamo" a detailed account of the defence of Wake Island, and the fate of the American Marine garrison taken from the Island after it surrendered. An intersting story. I noted that the old soldiers tale of enemy wounded or apparently dead soldiers appears yet again in this narrative. It is related that Japanese soldiers who were wounded engaged in the tactic of waiting until American soldiers passed over them, and the stood and shot at the Americans from behind. This then apparently justifies the shooting of wounded Japanese soldiers in the field.

I have now seen this narrative used in the "the Thin Red Line" where British soldiers describe this tactic used by the Russians during the Crimean Campaign in the 19th century. And again the same story surfaces in the narrative of German soldiers fighting the Russians during Barbarossa, as described in the "Russo-German war 1941-45". In all cases the "unorthodox" battle tactic is used to justify agressive take no prisoners triage of enemy wounded.

Has anyone else seen this story in other narratives of combat?


For a straighforward copy over zip version go here: Goerings Delay -- NZQS -- 1.3b.rar

The Mod can also be set up with the Jones Generic Mod Enabler and has worked fine in that mode in my tests. This version has everything in it, 1.3beta, JSGME and the East is Red patch, and can be installed straight to your Armageddon 1.2 (ZBLV) folder without disrupting vanilla at all. It has the 1.3beta exe update and JGSME Mod system right in it. Just unzip to your main doomsday folder, copy the contents of the folder, then past into the main folder, then enable the mod using the JSGME system. Once you execute the JSGME it is pretty self-explanatory: EIR NZQS --ARMA 1.3beta complete 1.3b

Small patch from XTPS or NZQS 1.2 to NZQS 1.3b: Goering EIR -- Patch 1.3b

It would be a dangerous folly for the British people to underrate the enduring position in world history which Mussolini will hold; or the amazing qualities of courage, comprehension, self-control and perseverance which he exemplifies.
