Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment Battles won by much weaker side
Voted to close since this is asking for a list which will never be exhaustive and will always be argumentative. For example, Thermopylae was not a Spartan/Greek victory since they all died and the Persian army continued onwards. Arguably it was a pyrrhic victory for the Persians.

comment Why didn't America finish Saddam Hussein after the first Gulf War?
Welcome to the site! You have two questions here. I suggest you ask them as two different ones. Both are good and should be asked but not in the same place.

+1 for C. V. Wedgwood's account. It is a great book.

comment Have any armies equipped/fed their officers and enlisted men equally?
@sds: As far as I know, they do eat in the same food, in the same place, out of the same utensils. I am not sure if they have separate mess halls for relaxation (Soldiers, NCOs, and Officers) as other branches of the French army have.
