Hello. If you have seen my prior posts you will know two things. First is that I am a verbose motherfucker who loves his historical comparisons. Second is that I am from Cadiz. These two things combined lead me to leave some autistic historical rants on my explanations, most of which are about Spain. I was starting to consider making proper explanations of certain events so I could link to them instead of repeating myself in “smaller” rants, but honestly I am lazy and also didn’t know this forum really did allow for this stuff. And then I saw this:
So yeah. That’s exactly what I’m doing here. Only I’m not just gonna quote the civil war, I do have a lot of stories from that, but I also have a lot of stories from other time periods, and I also have tales which happen over long periods of time including important notes during the civil war, such will be my first post outside of this OP itself as you’ll see. I am a “fuckup” connoisseur as it may, specially relating to military fuckups, so I hope you enjoy these tales of misfortune and general ineptitude as much as I do. Also, after consideration I decided to limit the area to hispanic countries. No real reason for it and "hispanic" is a pretty maleable term anyway but I thought it'd be fun that way. For the record at some point I wondered if I should just leave it open for ALL historical anecdotes so we could talk about some really funny military fuckups abroad but I decided that might be casting too wide a net, so if you want stories about your country make your own damned thread! Please do, some foreign historical fuckups are legendary. That aside, if you have good anecdotes about hispanic history, feel free to add them. If you want a specific event or tradition explained, feel free to ask, and basically just in general feel free to leave any input. Hell really I might update the OP to take out the area limit too if no one makes other threads and people want to add stories about foreign stuff.I can't be the only one who wants to hear more tales of the Spanish Civil War. Make a Deep Thoughts thread, maybe?
As you’ll soon see the objective of this thread, at least for me, will be to leave some autistically detailed explanations of events and phenomena related to History in a slightly mocking tone, and my next post will exemplify why I am choosing this tone, I hope. So that said. I’ll be using the rest of this specific post to add links to each story with a 1 word or 1 sentence description for ease of navigation, which I am aware means I’m likely to double post unless someone manages to fit in a comment while I am uploading images and formatting, so excuse the double post, as I shall bid you adieu for now.
