No more one line posts, or you will be sanctioned by the Moderators. You have already had one polite reminder.

There was one strategy that failed miserably, 75 years ago today.

Today we commemorate the capitulation of Singapore Island in 1942 when nearly 80,000 allied troops surrendered to a very much smaller Japanese force and entered into just over 31/2 years of miserable captivity from which many did not return.

Not really OT but historically On topic. I'm sure that many of those mistakes and vulnerabilities have been studied and gamed by our modern successors.
