Banana Wars - US Military Operations in the Caribbean 1898–1934: From 1898 to 1934 the United States launched a series of military interventions around the Caribbean. These campaigns were fought for a variety of reasons but came to be collectively known as the Banana Wars and would serve as a proving ground for future American military doctrine.
Julian the Apostate & the Battle of Strasbourg: Few figures in ancient history are as fascinating or contentious as the last pagan Roman emperor Julian the Apostate. His victory over the Germanic Alamanni at Strasbourg in the mid-fourth century proved that the late Imperial Roman Army was not feeble in the hands of the right commander.
Prelude to the Crimean War - Omar Pasha’s Danube Campaign: Russia in 1853 was a dominant military power in Europe, whereas the Turks were no longer the feared opponent. When Russia marched its troops to occupy the Danubian Principalities war between the two became inevitable. Twelve months later Russia would withdraw after suffering six major defeats at the hands of the Ottomans.
Operation Iceberg - Okinawa 1945: By late winter 1944, the Japanese were on the ropes but refusing to give in.To the Allies, an invasion of the Home Islands would be necessary, and a support base would be needed. All eyes focused on Okinawa.
Banana Wars: US Intervention In The Caribbean 1898-1935. Banana Wars is a two-player game simulating the period between 1898 and 1935 that saw increased US involvement due to the novelty and growing popularity of what else— the banana. During this period, the US Military participated in over 50 operations in a dozen Caribbean, Central and South American countries. Some interventions lasted for years. The occupation of Haiti lasted 19 years, the occupation of Nicaragua 21 years. In time, the US led seven separate invasions of Honduras. Our all but forgotten meddling in American affairs outside our own country led American writer William Henry Porter, known as O. Henry, to coin the term “Banana Republic.”
