POLL DESCRIPTION

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?
