A very good and bitter-sweet report, very engaging and I too thought it would be a walk-over by the CLA. Yes, I did wonder about shoving the M113 down the paratroopers throats but your preemptive explanation coupled with the perception that they were fighting demoralized Regime forces and not motivated Venezuelan professionals made the choice understandable. The proximity of an armed AFV could have demoralized enemy and triggered their surrender.
On a side note, I got some flak for my last Cuba Libre posting marathon so I will read 31 and the finale today but post on them later, in order to not obliterate the list of current posts.
Viva Chavez! That man will go far one day … If you don’t kill him in Cuba!
Cheers and good gaming.
