    We played a recreation of the British attack on Serre, Beaumont-Hamel and Thiepval on the 1st July 1916 as a Square Bashing game on Saturday. It was a tough slog, but I won’t ruin the result as there is a full AAR on my blog. Please take a look here:

    Wow, that was a great game at the Somme and a bonus WWII game to boot. Alas, all that was diminished by the terrific horror of the feline leviathan which emerged to dominate the WWI battlefield. Try as I might, I am having difficulty finding historical references for the appearance of this Lovecraftian monstrosity at Beaumont Hamel, but I suspect human minds recoiled from comprehending the event and its recollection was lost to subconscious but willful amnesia and the distance of time. But now your photographic evidence proves beyond a reasonable doubt that Cathulhu has risen from sunken R’lyeh. The end times are on us.

    Cheers and thanks for posting these battles.

    Thanks Rod, I assumed that the attack was centred on the Katze Redoubt, just behind the Schwaben Redoubt at Thiepval, but it seems you are right. The Cat with a Thousand Young stalked the battlefield to eliminate its human prey!
