Amiens 1918
« on: August 08, 2018, 09:38:45 AM »
Black day for the German army.
start of the 100 days.

History writers like  "100".  They tend to round off any number even remotely close to that amount.
100 days of the Waterloo campaign.
100 years war
100 days war in 1978 Lebanon
1944 100 day siege of Budapest
etc

others?

There's the "100 Hour War" ("Football War") between El Salvador and Honduras in 1969, which happened alongside rioting at a World Cup qualifying match...

Maybe the politicians need to plan wars to last 100 days or 100 weeks etc? This might end in soldiers just going home after 100 days to do some other jobs
