How the losers could have won at Agincourt, Naseby and Culloden
Bite sized historical rematches with 20/20 Hindsight
The Armchair Corporal turns the tables in another three famous battles. Talking about himself in third person hasn’t reduced AC’s amazing insights into how losers would have won, if only they were as brilliant as he!
Charles I of England, Bonnie Prince Charlie and some more ‘Medieval Dickheads’ all get a slap upside the head and some serious schooling in what they should have done if only they had 20/20 Hindsight and a dash of omniscience.
Chock full of fake retreats, superbly disciplined militia, and the obligatory flank march, check out these amateur military historian’s pipe dreams laid out in all their glory at 20/20 Hindsight Re-fight #2 Agincourt, Naseby, Culloden
How to win the battles of Waterloo, Gettysburg and Hastings
Bite sized rematches: Omniscient Armchair Corporal out-generals the pros.
Any amateur history buff worth their salt has imagined re-fighting a battle and rewriting history. It just so happens that I eat famous battles for breakfast, so I’ve described my legendary skillz in the Alt History section. Napoleon, General Lee and some ‘Medieval Dickheads’ could learn a thing or two from me as I blitz Waterloo, march all over Gettysburg and rewrite 1066 in the Anglo-Saxon chronicle.
So take a step back in time and suspend all notions of the fog of war. In my world, commanders always do what they are told and have excellent cross country navigational skills. My physically exhausted troops can always keep marching, especially on the huge flank manoeuvres that are all the rage with Armchair Generals. Coordinating multiple attacks without radios or even semaphore just happens as my mind wills it.
If I wasn’t allergic to getting up early I would probably join the armed forces and get that world peace thing happening. In the meantime you should check out how to turn the tables in some classic engagements at the 20/20 Hindsight Refight page.
