To commemorate today's 155th Anniversary of the Battle of Camerone, I've posted an After Action Report to my Camerone Day blog courtesy of my friend Nick Stern, who recently GM'ed this hardfought, close-run game. If you'd like to see and read more about it, click on the link below, and thanks in advance for your time if you do so!

Vive le Legion!

Wow, I had heard stories about a prosthetic hand but, until now, I had no clue of the connection.

The scatter terrain in that game was awesome.

This looks like great fun. I've always enjoyed "defense against overwhelming odds" scenarios – The Alamo, Rorke's Drift – and Camerone is one of the best of them. The table and figures look splendid. Thanks for sharing, Guru!

MG,

Thanks for the post.

I may have shared this on TMP before but – when Dad was on a Med cruise before making the landing at Inchon in 1950, he went to the FFL museum and saw Captain Danjou's hand. It was one of the highlights of his life and he told that story every year around this time. Of course his fellow Marines were not visiting any museums………

Built my model based roughly on pictures posted here on TMP. Ran it at at our Club and then at Huzzah several years ago. Always a lot of fun! Thanks for sharing this.

Excellent report and beautiful game and terrain.

Thank you Takeda and thanks to everyone for the very nice comments, and a special thanks to Cuirassier for providing his typically amazing brand of historical photographic evidence!

@Daryl: Hopefully when the time comes to run Camerone at my place again, you will be there my friend!

@Liliburlero: I remember that great story about your dad seeing Danjou's wooden hand in the Legion museum, Lori, and thank you for retelling it here again!
