6 Mind-Blowing Tactical Tricks That Turned The Tide Of War

Technology and manpower never guarantee a military victory by themselves. And neither can tactics and strategy — sometimes, it takes an extra measure of trickery and subterfuge to swing the tide on the battlefield.  A group of Quora users sought to answer the question "What are the most mind-blowing tricks used during any war?" The answers provide a fascinating insight into some of the minds responsible for the most ingenious successes in the history of war.  1. Operation Mincemeat During World War II, the British launched a successful disinformation plan called Operation Mincemeat. The operation was created in an effort to convince the Germans that the Allies planned on invading Sardinia and Greece — instead of Sicily, where they actually landed in July of 1943.  The operation was carried out successfully by obtaining the corpse of a homeless man in London, who was then given a false identity as a Major in the Royal Marines. This man was then given false plans documenting an invasion of Sardinia and Greece, before being thrown to the tide off the coast of Spain.  The British alerted the Spanish, who were nominally neutral during the war, to be on the lookout for a British Marine carrying documents that had to be recovered. The papers were promptly handed over to the Nazis by the Spanish, and convinced Hitler to reposition troops away from Sicily.    2. Heroin-Laced Cigarettes  The British and Ottomans were locked in extremely slow-moving trench warfare during World War I's Palestine Campaign. Eventually, the British learned that the Ottomans had run out of cigarettes. In an attempt to demoralize their enemy, the British began sending cigarettes wrapped in propaganda to the Ottomans.  Instead of surrendering, the Ottomans threw away the propaganda and smoked. So, before the British scheduled one raid, they switched tactics and threw over cigarettes laced with heroin. The British met little opposition from the Ottoman forces during their assault.   3. Moving A Naval Fleet Over Land During the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople in 1453, the invading Turks faced a major challenge. The Byzantines had erected a giant chain across the Golden Horn, a stretch of water that connected Constantinople to the sea. This chain effectively blocked the Ottoman navy from making their way to the enemy capital. In order to overcome the chain, the Ottomans moved their navy overland using log rollers. This allowed the Ottomans to bypass the chain and attack the Byzantines from multiple fronts, ultimately aiding in the capture of the city that's now called Istanbul.    4. Cats! In 525 B.C., the Persians were pushing their empire into Egypt. Knowing that the Egyptians held cats in extremely high regard — and even considered them to be sacred animals — the Persians made use of the felines as a weapon of war, at least according to one ancient source.  During an invasion of Egypt, the Persians painted cats on their shields and brought hundreds of actual cats and other sacred animals onto the front lines during the siege of the Egyptian city of Pelusium. The Egyptians refused to attack the Persians out of fear that the might injure the cats, allowing the Persians to seize the city.   5. High-Class Treatment Of POWs — With A Twist During World War II, the British housed captured senior Nazi officials in a country mansion in England as opposed to a prison camp. The officers were given plenty of food and drink, were allowed to listen to German radio, and were allowed to speak to each other freely.  Unbeknownst to the Nazis, the British had wired the entire mansion and had intelligence personnel working in the basement recording their conversations. The British learned about Nazi strategy and tactics, as well as about relationships between commanders and Hitler within the Nazi army.    6. Deceptive Marching During the American Civil War, Confederate General John B. Magruder faced off against Union General George B. McClellan at the Siege of Yorktown. Magruder and the confederate forces were outnumbered by an estimated 4 to 1. In order to overcome the Union forces, Magruder marched his troops in a repetitive back-and-forth in an effort to convince Union scouts that the Confederate force was larger than it appeared.  The Union was deceived, and halted the assault instead of pushing its advantage. This allowed Magruder time to reinforce his position, leading what would have been a certain Union victory to an inconclusive finish. SEE ALSO: 7 unbelievable military weapons most people have never heard of Join the conversation about this story »

The Sunrise: Victoria Hislop’s New Novel About Famagusta

40 years ago, the Cypriot town of Famagusta was occupied by Turkish forces. Today it’s capturing media attention once again, as the subject of Victoria Hislop’s new novel, “The Sunrise,” which will be released in Greece on October 22. “As I was writing my book I felt as if my fingers were wet and I was putting them in the power socket. I felt like the subject was as fresh as it was 40 years ago, like not a day has gone past,” she said in a recent interview with the Greek newspaper “Fileleftheros.” Hislop’s literary inspiration came from the town’s empty buildings. “The Sunrise” marks the first time she has written about a city that she could not even explore, she told “Fileleftheros.” “I traveled to Cyprus many times, I visited Famagusta, stood near the wire and watched the city. I spent some time on the roof of the Turkish-Cypriot mayor’s office in Famagusta and tried to gather as many images as I could.” Ankara denied her request to enter the city’s cordoned off sections. The author first visited Famagusta in 1978 at the age of 18. “I was travelling by bus. I started from London, went through several former socialist countries and ended up in Turkey. There we took a boat and went to Kyrenia, if I’m not mistaken. For three weeks I was camping. Although it was a carefree trip, it was also very strange. I was looking at a hotel in Famagusta, which looked like a resort, surrounded by beautiful beaches, yet I could not go near it. I could not understand this.” When asked if she knew about the Turkish invasion in Cyprus, Hislpo admitted that, while it sounds “incredibly na├»ve, she could not remember.” In 1974, at the age of 14, she remembers reading about Cyprus, Watergate and Nixon’s resignation. “I remember seeing the name of Kissinger, who was involved in both issues, and the look on his face, for some reason, reminded me of a cartoon figure… I didn’t like many things: Makarios, was also involved in politics, and the UK was also involved… I never heard about Cyprus again,” she added.

World's Mangrove Forests At Risk, UN Experts Say

ATHENS, Greece (AP) — U.N. experts are warning that the world's mangrove forests are being destroyed at a more rapid rate than other forest ecosystems because of land conversion, development and pollution. A U.N. Environment Program report presented Monday said mangroves are disappearing three to five times faster than other forests. It said by 2050, southeast Asia could potentially lose 35 percent of the mangroves it had in 2000. Described in the report as one of the world's most threatened ecosystems, mangrove forests mitigate global warming by trapping vast quantities of carbon that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere. UNEP officials and scientists are holding a three-day conference in Athens, seeking solutions to major marine environmental problems such as the accumulation of plastic debris in the seas, collapsing fish stocks and ocean acidification.

Immigrants in Lesvos Live in Horrid Conditions

A new wave of immigration has the humanitarian crisis on the Greek island of Lesvos more dire than at any time in recent history. According to local media, human traffickers bring illegal migrants to the island on a daily basis, leaving local authorities unable to provide suitable living conditions for the displaced. While an Immigrant Welcome Center has opened in Moria, Lesvos, the number of migrants arriving daily on the island from Turkey far exceedes what authorities are capabling of handling. There is simply no room to accommodate them, Greek officials say. Meanwhile, more and more residents of Lesvos are filing formal complaints against the Greek state; they claim that authorities have all but given up after realizing that they could not find a way to deal with the situation. Immigrants and refugees from all around the world have continued to flood the island. Owing to the lack of migrant accommodation facilities, they are forced to live in the port of Mytilene, without water, sleeping under parked cars to protect themselves from the rain and the cold. A migrant who lives in the port of Mytilene recently spoke with local media and described the horrid living conditions faced by Lesvos’s immigrants every day:

Bishop Amvrosios Against Jihadists

Resistance to jihad terror and Islamic supremacism is being criminalized in Greece, claims the website Jihadwatch.org. According to the site, which quotes the sermon of a prominent Greek bishop, Islamic supremacists cannily use charges of “racism” to demonize and marginalize all those who oppose their insidious agenda. Metropolitan Amvrosios of Kalavrya has spoken out adamantly against the anti-racism laws recently passed in Greece. “With the new law into effect, those who speak of the motherland and patriotism will risk jail,” he says. “A priest who will speak up against Jehovah’s Witnesses and other religions from the ambo, may be declared a racist and imprisoned,” said the hierarch. “Soon we will become aliens in our own home country. I do not know whether I will live to see these times, but your children will surely be slaves of Muslims. Greece is disappearing, faith is disappearing… Keep the flame of the motherland and faith. Globalization is not knocking at our doors any more – it has already entered our homes,” he added.

The Upcoming Troika Negotiations: A Case of Hot Potatoes?

The Troika’s upcoming evaluation of Greece’s financial recovery will include a helping of “hot potatoes” for the Greek government – that is to say, the need to address heated topics such as retirement age, public sector layoffs and health care costs. Today, a meeting at the Maximos Mansion between Greek Finance Minister Gikas Hardouvelis and Prime Minister Antonis Samaras has been scheduled to address any last-minute “fine tuning” required for the Troika’s arrival to Athens tomorrow, September 30. The finance minister will have consecutive meetings with all ministers scheduled to participate in the negotiations. The Greek team will attempt to map the critical areas of the upcoming negotiations and hopes to speculate on lenders’ demands. After last night’s meeting with Labor Minister Yiannis Vroutsis on issues such as lay-offs and retirement age, Hardouvelis is now preparing for tomorrow’s Troika meeting. The agenda of meetings for today includes the following: A meeting with Minister of Justice, Nikos Dendias, and Minister of Development, Charalambos Athanasiou, on the issue of “red loans” and the new bankruptcy law. A meeting with Administrative Reform Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on the issue of the evaluation of public employees and new layoffs in the public payroll. A meeting with Environment Minister Yiannis Maniatis on energy issues, such as the creation of NOME auctions for quantities of electricity from lignite and hydro units from the Public Power Corporation, the opening of gas markets by abolishing the monopoly of local suppliers and the splitting up of the management and marketing network of three gas companies in Attica, Thessaloniki and Thessaly. A meeting with Health Minister Makis Voridis on the issue of public health costs, one of Greece’s lenders’ biggest concerns, as mismanagement and other health care deficits continue to threaten the primary surplus. The government however has drawn “red lines” in the following two areas: The labor minister’s negotiation red line is that he will not agree to any cuts on primary pensions or any changes in age limits for retirement. He does not want fiscal demands to affect Greek family planning. Age limits: The government does not want to change retirement age limits. For those entitled to pension from January 1st, 2013 onwards, full pension shall be paid at the age of 67 or alternatively at 62 years, but with 40 years of insured employment. The government has declared that any new interventions to retirement age limits will lead automatically to the retirement of thousands of employees, a move that could have a dramatic impact on pension funds. Pensions: The government refuses to reduce pension payments by primary insurance funds. Vroutsis will indicate that a number of laws have resolved this issue. This applies to those who retire from 2015 onwards, as a new method of calculating their primary pension has been determined. Regarding supplementary pension funds, from 2015 forth the clause of “zero deficit” will apply. This means that depending on the financial situation of each insurance fund, both lump sum payments and supplementary pensions will be adjusted accordingly. On the issue of lay offs, the state has requested extra time in order to evaluate the changes that have been made​, despite the Troika’s insistence on new legislation. For trade union law changes, the discussion remains open. A meeting between the minister and social partners with the General Director of the International Labor Office in Geneva has been scheduled for tomorrow in order to reach consensus. Furthermore, Giannis Vroutsis is traveling to Geneva today in order to attend a meeting with the International Labour Office (ILO), a program the government has commissioned to conduct a study on the changes to collective lay offs and union rights. The Greek side is going to ask for extra time for negotiations on this matter, as it believes that the report will prove that the layoffs demanded by the Troika cannot apply to any country in which unemployment hovers at 27%.
