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.
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.
