Post battles that happened where you live.
Hard mode: nothing from WWI or WWII
Mexicans get rekt, and Texas becomes independent.
I don't live here now, but I remember when the elders used to talk about this and laughed at the Spanish. Especially at what happened in November 6.
This happened near to where I grew up.
Probably the day hope for native independence died in North America.
This is kinda close
Battle of Frigidus
This is in estonian, can't find anything of it in english.
Estonians had 1 division and 1 armoured train.
Russians had 1 division and 3 companies.
Russians lost atleast 50 men, estonians had 0 wounded and 0 casualties
Battle of the Catalaunian Fields
>all these German tribes
This followed by lots of executions of commies.
.... and this ebin gem of gorilla warfare from Finnish War that doesn't even have translation in wikipedia.
TL;DR Russians reported that they had repelled a frontal assault a army corps commanded by general Roth and a fleet commanded by admiral Spoof.
What actually happened? Sergeant major Roth and corporal Spoof led 41 men to raid Russian supply columns and couple depots in Russian rear, that lasted for three weeks. Once they ran into Russian regiment with artillery they came up with conclusion to get somewhere else. Russians were able to get names of commanders from locals as said commanders were locals. Carl Johan Spoof caught mild case of pestilence and died few months after raid, Jakob Johan Roth got promoted to lieutenant and lived happily ever after.
A failed siege in 1442 from a war between local Celje Dukes and Habsburgs, so irrelevant there's not even an english article about it.
Also, technically, there was a skirmish here during the independence war in 91, when a helicopter was shot down by an rpg. The whole thing was moronic, since the pilot flying the Yugoslav army helicopter was a slovene collaborator but decided he'd be more useful to the effort by not defecting and staying infiltrated.
Battle of Wilson's Creek, Confederate victory with some heavy losses. Also two other small Civil War skirmishes fought in my city.
Weird to know that my city used to be Spanish.
>100 miles radius
kekking at new world, if I expand my radius to 100 miles, I can list at least two battles that heavily influenced western civilisation as a whole
This hill had a fairly large neolithic fort/town on it, which despite having 8 layers of embankments and 2 metre high walls was completely destroyed 5000 odd years ago by an unknown attacker
Not really a battle, but it'll do.
>city rebels against Spanish tyranny
>the Iron Duke Alva sents an army to capture the city
>counterattack gets BTFO
>citizens get to choose between starving to death in a plague ridden city or getting butchered by the Black Legend
>mayor supposedly cuts off his own arm to feed the masses
>city is relieved by flooding the countryside
30 years war worst war, at least we got hutspot and a local holiday in return.
I came here to post this. Texians caught the lazy Mexicans napping.
Remember the Alamo.
We've been sieged quite a few times. When we were a Roman settlement we were burned down by barbarians, and later rebuilt as a walled settlement. We've also been sieged a few times
Some of the old fortifications are still around today. Pic related, them in the 1750s and them nowadays.
Getting that out of the way, I feel as though I should mention, fuck the rules, thttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Maastricht
There's also a small monument at a roundabout near where I live that honours the memory of the particular Canadian battalion or company that liberated this part of the city. The Canucks were the ones who liberated the city from the Nazi's towards the end of the War, so we like them here.
here's the bottom pic not stretched to hell and back
10 min walk from where i live.
westernmost 'battle' of the civil war
Pretty important when it comes to pissing on the Spanish
1030 - Russians conquered and destroyed my town
1224 - My town was completely burnt down (Thanks, Germans)
1558-1625 - Numerous battles between Polish, Swedes and Russians, a lot of the town was destroyed and its inhabitants deported
1708 - Town almost completely burnt down and its inhabitants deported
1775 - 2/3 of my town was destroyed in a fire
1944 - 2/3 of my town destroyed by Soviet bombers
>mfw I'd literally be living in a town which would be like a huge museum
Not really a battle but...
>Killing chinks for no reason
>drunk guy single-handedly fires cannon on british troops
>burns everything to the ground
This happened in my hometown
kudos to those who can figure what battle it was.
