#truth


Stevid, the only man's who's won an NS war by not replying for six weeks until the invader basically goes away, only to find out that they immediately sense the inactivity of the invader and massively ramp up the garrison.

Well played in South Greal, Stevs lmao

Lamoni, The Matthew Islands, Haishan, and The Qoryx

Welcome to GD, Carmini! Mokastana will eventually be around with the welcome basket.

As I'm absolute rubbish with designing maps or anything of that nature, would someone be willing to aid me in creating one for The Qoryx?

I'm also about 5 hours away from my personal computer so I only have access to whatever my father (who is in IT for those already cringing) has on his desktop.

Also, can anyone give me advice on how to make a map? I'm really trying to undo some of my neglect of Wanderjar from the past several years and create one.


Um the Crown and UWO don't really like each other so please keep our troops apart in your country.

Talking about our war?

I've always hand-sketched mine then scanned it on my printer while using GIMP to help finish it off with MS Paint as well.

I was just teasing him about the reference in his last post about Wanderjar's implosion during my individual invasion of South Greal. The RL reason for it was that a month to six weeks went by and Stevid was just busy, no harm no foul. I got busy and literally looking back as SOON as that happened he bolstered everything and took sound advantage of it. Just messing with him :p

The Illuminatus Kingdom of Imbrinium wrote:Um the Crown and UWO don't really like each other so please keep our troops apart in your country.


Part of the reason I want to map is actually to show where all my units are, and I was keeping in mind all the joint forces pacts I've got. Some of them intersect, Imbrinium and Lyran forces could reasonably share bases without problems, same with Lamoni, USPA and Mac*, but UWO would need a base on the other side of the country. lol

(*Not official that Mac has troops in Wanderjar, only told him that he'd be allowed to base there if he felt it necessary/wanted to)

United World Order

The Afrikaner Free State of Wanderjar wrote:Part of my argument was that with the successful operation, though Eisenhower and his staff had no knowledge of Sun Tzu at the time, they did actually successfully incorporate his theories, albeit unwittingly.

I just want to point out that a 1910 English translation of The Art of War was either recommended reading, or required reading (I can't remember which) to students at West Point starting in 1912. As Eisenhower graduated in 1915 he was almost certainly well versed in it. Along with the rest of his class, the mythical "class the stars fell on".

Honestly though, they were more enamored with Clausewitz. Understandably so. But I never found either Sun Tsu or Clausewitz that great, or really that revolutionary from a historical point. The basic elements of what they espouse were in active play long before either put pen to paper. Both authors are in fact best taken in if you consider their situations, which would be that they were trying to push what was effectively "common sense" onto affluent leaders who lacked that "common sense" because they lived in isolated wealthy and powerful bubbles from the real world. This is largely different from writings of the likes of Fuller, Guderian, Tukhachevsky, and others in the interwar period (Which I am infinitely more familiar with so I use them) who were more often then not writing for junior officers rather then high leaders.

That said, those are in the top five books I recommend to anyone who wants to get into the subject. It is the essential basis for military strategical thinking. And, of course, practically everything since is based on either of them or both. You absolutely can not understand Fuller without reading Clausewitz, nor can you Guderian, de Gaulle, Tukhachevsky, or others.
