Today in European history: the Battle of Legnica (1241)

I note the Battle of Legnica’s anniversary today not because it was a huge or even particularly important battle, but because it gives me a chance to write all that stuff about the pincer movement. The fact that it wasn’t a particularly significant battle means I could talk about the whole feigned retreat thing without this post becoming some 2000 word monstrosity (hey, stay tuned for this evening’s conflict updates!), so that’s convenient I guess.
