The January 1781 American defeat of the British at Cowpens, South Carolina is one of the most ingeniously scripted displays of tactical genius, ever, by an American commander. Some historians call it “the most perfect battle fought in the Americas” The American commander, Brigadier General Daniel Morgan, a self-taught frontiersman, outwitted, and his forces outfought, the well-trained British regulars, finishing the battle with a military maneuver history rarely sees: a double envelopment. The battle served as inspiration for the final battle of Mel Gibson’s 2000 film “The Patriot.” Cowpens was a turning point in the war, the British surrendered ten months later. This video takes you to the war and shows you the battle.

“I am not one of those weak-spirited, sappy Americans who want to be liked by all the people around them. I don’t care if people hate my guts; I assume most of them do. The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it. My affections, being concentrated over a few people, are not spread all over Hell in a vile attempt to placate sulky, worthless shits.” - William S Burroughs

German War

When the Allies landed at Normandy, the Panzers could only be released by the Fuhrer. but Hitler had a headache and left orders not to be disturbed. The Panzers could have thrown the Allies back into the sea. ;)
