Fun fact: it was actually the Nazis which first brought this 'dirty tactic' as it was commonly seen as around.

It was first used in France back on the 10th May 1940 Battle of France and after and essentially you just:
-mortar a town/village
-send in the tanks
-followed by the infantry.

Granted - it worked really well - but I find it funny how the Americans adopted this tactic.

Outnumbering the enemy by 10,000 and possessing air support, tanks and massively superior weaponry and supply lines.

Wow, such heroics. Very tactical.

The last one is like pitting an exterminatus fleet against a brown recluse and being surprised the fleet won through some miracle of "Tactics"

The last one didn't really seem like a fair fight to begin with.... All the others seemed to be about overcoming being outnumbered through superior tactics.

Regarding the last one - I'm pretty sure it's against funnyjunk's rules to post rape.

If anyone wants a great but comprehensible history lesson aboutthe war beween Carthage, as in Hanibal troops, and Rome check the linked video including the other parts. It's about the Punic wars, and is well worth the watch. Although not too thourough for constraint reasons, it does show the strategy behind some of the battles extremely well.
