    Yeah, Epsom was the British offensive to take Caen in late June.

    Operation Epsom and the Battle of the Hurtgen Forest ring any bells?

    First Russia, now China?

    I never really got into Korean TV dramas myself. I find them to be a little ridiculous. On the other hand I really enjoy Korean cinema.

    The Washington Post usually gives you 2-3 free articles per month.

    The Korean alphabet is actually a relatively recent development. Before the 15th Century Korean was written using Chinese characters. For a long time literacy was the sole preserve of the upper classes. The only way to move up in society was to take the civil service examinations which required years of study of Chinese characters. The Korean king Sejong the Great wanted people to become literate so he commissioned a group of scholars to develop an easily understood writing system. It took them a couple of years and the king presented Hangul to his people in 1446. It's actually a really well developed alphabet and incredibly easy to learn. It took me about a week to learn it at DLIFLC. Of course Korean grammar is a completely different animal...

    Everything in Seoul is overpriced. Especially if it is foreign.
  9. You can always add artillery in the scenario editor.
  10. It totally is. It's still a damn good film.
  11. If you like westerns let me recommend The Good, the Bad, the Weird. It's a Korean western that takes place in the late 1930s in Manchuria. It''s about a thief, a hitman, and a bounty hunter searching for a Qing Dynasty treasure buried in the desert before the Japanese army finds it first.
  12. To be fair, Game of Thrones is an adaptation of a book series. They couldn't just end it in the middle of the series. Although, I will say that the quality of the show decreased sharply after they outpaced George R. R. Martin's writing.

    Stuart Recce - What's the point?

    You Brits have an odd sense of humor... and I damn well appreciate it.

    I've come across references to a Fredrocker CM:FI campaign called "The Boyz of FGM". Unfortunately the link on his blog is dead. I was wondering if anyone had this one.

    I understand that the vehicle was historical and therefore included in the game. I also try and use them for recon purposes only when I am commanding a combined arms unit. The problem usually comes up in some of the smaller scenarios where you are in command of only a recce unit.
