That is an exception

Hits: 13

I am afraid I did not keep the references of the pic (because I doubted to include it in the webpage)… You see I put the foot down at 1900… I guess as an european I do not like to be reminded of the first (Europe’s Imperial Suicide) WWI or the second (WWII) much more global if you ask me… and full of horrors too hard to digest. I do not like “modern war”… airplanes bombing civilians… mustard gas… V1 or V2… you have your choice pick it yourselves… I do respect the courage of the common foot soldiers involved of course (I am not callous)… but count me out… not even in boardgames.

So, as you need all sorts (as I keep reminding you) I would firmly stay in an era of shiny Toy Soldiers (preferably with gaudy uniforms and officer’s leading from the front)… my only Khaki exception is the second Anglo-Afghan War, but that is what it is… an exception! (wily Afghans are too good long shooters for gaudy uniforms…).

A day of exceptions today!
