    Jon -you have heard of Napoleon Bonaparte? ;)

    surely it's natural to be 'obsessed' by a man who truly did orchestrate (and by that, I do mean direct) the world's first genuinely international war? His ambitions touched to a greater or lesser degree countries which at the time had little connection (or no connection at all) to each other: from the African troops from tribally-disparate countries like Nigeria and Kenya, which gallantly formed the most excellent King's African Rifles; to the Pacific Rim, through the frequently-frozen steppes of Eastern Europe, to America and Canada.



    The scope of the war against Napoleon spread just as far if not further than Hitler's war.

    I don't quite remember seeing Marmont nor Bessières near Tsarytsin (Later Stalingrad, later Volgograd) nor Narvik, nor did Davout start from Dakar, but on the other hand Rommel did not get close to Jaffa or Acre :lol:

    Aha! Rommel defeating the Anglo-Mamelouk Coalition of the Unwilling at the Sclacht bei der Pyramiden, or Villeneuve hiding out at the Altenfjord, or Scharnhorst & Gneisenau based in the Martinique :p

    Tim, the legal disclaimer is the funny part of your picture :D

    Legal disclaimer This image shows (or resembles) a symbol that was used by the National Socialist (NSDAP/Nazi) government of Germany or an organization closely associated to it, or another party which has been banned by the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany.
    The use of insignia of organizations that have been banned in Germany (like the Nazi swastika or the arrow cross) may also be illegal in Germany, Austria, Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, France, Brazil, Israel, Canada and other countries, depending on context. In Germany, the applicable law is paragraph 86a of the criminal code (StGB), in Poland – Art. 256 of the criminal code (Dz.U. 1997 nr 88 poz. 553).
    Therefore, if you are in Germany, Austria, Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, France, Brazil, Israel, or Canada, fuck off, you're not allowed to read this or the government will get you.
    Seriously. GTFO. This article might just call you a god-damn ni-*gets arrested*

    Indeed! Napoleon did reach Moscow - In your face Blitzkrieg!!! :lol:. The Napoleonic wars could certainly lay claim to have been the first truly intercontinental wars, from the Caribbean to Moscow and from Northern Europe to Egypt. Less participants though,than WW2 I would imagine.

    "The Napoleonic wars could certainly lay claim to have been the first truly intercontinental wars, from the Caribbean to Moscow and from Northern Europe to Egypt."

    Quite an Eurocentric view. The Punic Wars encompassed two continents - Europe and Africa - albeit in limited areas, the Persian wars ditto for Europe and Asia, and Alexander's Conquest went as far as India and Kazakhstan. Never mind the Mongol Expansion: from Korea to Germany and Egypt.

    In more recent times the Seven Years War hit Europe, the Americas and the Indian subcontinent. Not to mention a multitude of colonial brushfires, such as the Portuguese Restoration in the 17th Century running through Brazil, plus Africa, India and the East Indies against Dutch, French and Brits. No quarrel with any Irish though :D

    Well at one stage we did populate a lot of the British Army!!! But not under our own flag, we're well up for a quarrel :lol:

    Not only, the Irish were populating armies all over the place, off the cuff I remember a Frederick the Great field marshal named Browne. Should look up Wild Geese later on.

    Intersting how a thread can develop :)

    From the article:
    Cheeky Georg has been heavily criticised for his Adolf Hitler toilet paper, with naysayers declaring that it trivialises the crimes of the dictator and his Third Reich movement.
    These 'naysayers' must never have seen some of the period cartoons of Adolf, and maybe even not heard a certain song about monoglobes?

    Careful Giles, you're 'trivialising' the Third Reich :rolleyes:.

    And might I add: FFS...
