From: Baton Rouge, LA
Not really a "moment," and I have to brush the cobwebs off this memory, but I played a game of WiF/DoD around 1995. I don't remember too many specifics, but my opponent, as the Axis, managed to align Sweden, take Poland, Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, Gibralter, Egypt, and Yugoslavia. Barbarossa was quite successful, and he was able to align Turkey. Japan mostly stood on the defensive in China and made their historical gains in the Pacific, but put in a maximum effort in the Indian Ocean and was able to take India, meeting up with the Italians somewhere in the Mideast.
My one success, if it can be called that, was in defeating his Sea Lion invasion by throwing his successful landing off the beach.
My opponent and I were both serving in the US Army at the time, me as a sergeant, he as a lieutenant. When he offered to play a game and I asked him if we should be concerned about the perception of officer/enlisted fraternization, he said wargaming was NCO professional development. The beat-down he proceeded to administer was certainly a lesson.

There is no overkill. There is only "open fire" and "reloading."
