From Decision Games:
On to Baghdad: Mesopotamia & Persia, 1914–18: Their defeats in the Libyan and Balkan Wars of 1911–13 led the Turks to look east. Given the strength of the European powers in the west, it seemed their only route to reestablishing regional dominance.
- Hell on Highway 19: The Destruction of Groupement Mobile 100: The annihilation of an elite French motorized combat unit by the Viet Minh during the First Indo-China War proved to be a terrible harbinger of what the United States might encounter in its war in Vietnam 10 years later.
- The Fall of the Portuguese Empire in India: The Portuguese created the first global empire in history, beginning with their seizure of Ceuta on the African side of the Straits of Gibraltar in 1415. At its peak, their empire stretched from Brazil through Central Africa, onto the Indian subcontinent at Goa, and the South Pacific and East - Asia at Macao. This is how the portion of it on the Indian subcontinent came to its end.
