So /his/, what would be good examples of Pyrrhic Victories?
Also I have no idea what this image will be so please ignore it.
most of the confederate victories in the American Civil War are a good start. the CSA won plenty of battles against armies twice their size, but Confederate soldiers were irreplaceable where the Union could always just recruit more.
Chancellorsville would be the big one with a victory with the loss of General Jackson.
Battle of Bunker Hill during the American Revolution. The British drove the Americans from the hill, but took over twice as many casualties. Officer casualties in particular were disproportionaly high too.
The battle of Malplaquet. This one is not well known for some reason even though the Duke of Marlborough was an excellent general.
oh my fuck this meme just keeps getting better and better
Lots of your soldiers die at the cost of a victory
Like the Russians in WW2
It's ironic how Pyrrhus himself has a limited military history. But he was known for winning battles with maximum casualties; i.e. when the result sets precedent over the task. Otherwise I would say the Eastern Front from the end of 1942 to early 1944 was entirely Pyrrhic for the Soviets.
