oh that's actually a lot more straightforward than our use of the word.
In the American Civil War there were less than ten battle where over 1000 people perished.
That was a huge part on our outlook for WW1
We were afraid to get involved during the build up of it, because we saw how big battles got during the Napoleonic wars.
Ausfag here, I always assumed casualties meant the how many people were 'taken out of the fight' so to speak. Wounded/killed/missing doesn't matter.
Yeah fair enough, I don't blame the Americans for joining late. I doubt that any of the countries would have signed up to the war knowing the amount of lives they would throw away.
Brits and frogs got rekt by Russians.
Those pathetic Ottomans. Can`t defend a city even when they outnumber the enemy.
Her Majesty's boys slotting some spear chukkers, yes lads. The film's good too.
>all these shitty battles where defenders win
it's only impressive if the outnumbered side is also the offensive side
>Brits explain yourselves
We made our counter-argument many years ago, friend.
keked at the 500 brits, but honestly, if they were wounded or just couldn't go further, why not do this, why would they die for a stupid commander sending a frontal attack without visibility
War of the Pacific, best day in Chile's history, we gained the territory that sustains our economy to this day, we landlocked Bolivia, and fucked their shit up along Peru, with a bunch of fearsome soldiers fueled with "cachupilca del diablo" which is a shitty liquor mixed with gunpowder that created a fungi within the bottle that gave the soldiers a berserk effect (a la vikings with amanita muscaria), whenever they drank it before battle.
Wellington's greatest victory coming through.
honestly 99% of our victories are when we were outnumbered, we just didn't like to have big standing army because we were greedy and corrupt as fuck.
I've never heard of this battle but judging by the text under the picture and the filename I'm assuming it was knights and artillery vs archers and peasants. That's not so bad if that's the case.
>Still identifying yourself with "le epic human made borders and nationality"
>A passport holds any value other than a tool to regulate current human affairs
>Implying I'm the delusional one and not you
keep giving power to human made construct that divide humanity and help bring pain and suffering to people everywhere.
>they are there for a plethora of reasons
of course to keep idiots like you divided so you will be easier to control, but it's even better because you actually think it's necessary or good for you.
>this is why i became an individualist, those people are not my history and i have nothing to do with them
Sunt tare, şi nimeni nu poate să mă doboare, am putere mare !
I love the Armenians for the sheer buttdevestation they cause to the turds.
This is the only thing I could think of from the modern republic.

The joys of aristocracy (as opposed to meritocracy in Napoleonic France).
If the British had applied meritocracy too, they'd probably have had a more competent general and it thus wouldnt have taken them 6 fucking years to take back Spain, a secondary theater the French barely cared about.
Very heavy meaning they got wiped out. Like literally. Charles Robert barely made it out.
This one with the French btfo...
Actually, I've realized the rare occasions we were the ones significantly outnumbering the enemy, basically the Portuguese, we could not into win.
Mental note: go outnumbered next time we march into Portugal.
1. US started it
2. They failed to achieve all their ends
3. Result: status quo ante bellum
No one won that war, in all likelihood it was an American failure. Hence its either forgotten about or lied about by... Americans!
Oh and don't even bother claiming the press ganging of US sailors was stopped by the US, the British stopped it before the Americans found out.
Gonna spam a little, there are quite a few of those.
>26:30 according to the most conservative estimates
you're country's a shit
>britain enslaves american sailors
>america goes to war to stop it
>no territorial changes officially but britain's indian allies are destroyed and america gains real control over the northwest
>bongs calls this "failure"
lol, by our standards it's not one of our better outings but we still gained considerably by doing it.
>his noble title being raised after each of those defeats
and the funniest part is that wasn't even the grande armée but reserves and greenies.
but it would be lovely to see him fighting napoleon in portugal he would probably be demoted to the point where he would have to pick a rifle and fight as a foot soldier
>British veterans blown the fuck out by a handful of militia, pirates, and soldiers
Take special note of the 500 British cowards who pretended to be dead and then surrendered.
