    LINNVILLE RAID OF The sacking of Victoria and Linnville in August in what was then Victoria County was the strategic object of a great Comanche raid in , the most terrifying of all Comanche raids in Southeast Texas. The attack originated as an aftermath of the Council House Fight in San Antonio in March that until recently, Hollywood had decided to devote any great deal of attention to it. I was amazed to learn that one of the greatest raids in American military history occurred in this theater. Alright, I know that Hollywood can not be trusted to deliver an uncompromised version of history. I suppose that the movie "The Great Raid" probably.

    The Great Raid of was the largest raid ever mounted by Native Americans on white cities in what is now the United States. It followed the Council House Fight, in which Republic of Texas officials attempted to capture and take prisoner 33 Comanche chiefs who had come to negotiate a peace treaty, killing them together with two dozen of their family and on: Victoria, and Linnville, Texas.   The Great Library of Alexandria (CC by SA ) Theory 1: Julius Caesar. Perhaps one of the most interesting accounts of its destruction comes from the accounts of the Roman writers. According to several authors, the Library of Alexandria was accidentally destroyed by Julius Caesar during the siege of Alexandria in 48 : Dhwty.

      Here is a war movie that understands how wars are actually fought. After "Stealth" and its high-tech look-alikes, which make warfare look like a video game, "The Great Raid" shows the hard work and courage of troops whose reality is danger and death. The difference between "Stealth" and "The Great Raid" is the difference between the fantasies of the Pentagon architects of "shock and awe" and. The "Great Raid," the subject of a new movie, was cloaked in secrecy and draped with urgency. In August , with defeat imminent, the Japanese War Ministry issued a "kill all policy" to cover up.
