Bottle Battles

Posted by & filed under Bars!, BLATHER, Thanks.

This Sunday I’m thankful there are men in the world who don’t allow even the mortal danger of organized violence to come between them and a good piss-up.

A few months ago, in the March 2020 issue of Miniature Wargames magazine, I learned about the Battle of Tuttlingen.


I thought, “Cool, that’s a well written Thirty Years War scenario; and one side being loaded does make it VS.” Then, as is my wont, I carried on.

Fast Forward to last week. My awesome Mailman delivered my copy of the Medieval Warfare 2019 Special Edition: Rise of the Gun (which is excellent, by the way!). Therein is an article titled, “The Good, the Bad and the Intoxicated.” That’s when I found out about the Battle of Beverhoutsveld.


The moral of the story is this: if your enemy’s tight as an owl you’ll likely carry the day.
