POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo ochoin Supporting Member of TMP opines...

We wargamers appreciate that even on real battlefields, the dice may not favor even a commander with virtually decisive advantages.

Military history is replete with examples of surprise results, when the underdog gains an unlikely victory. A "lucky" victory or two and the campaign may well be won.

Which do you think the most surprising results?

Poll set up by Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian, based on this pre-poll discussion.
