    I don't usually play the game on 'Prince' mode for reasons that will soon be obvious. In this scenario, I (the Zulus) had to invade the Dutch capitol in order to prevent a cultural victory. Alas, what a shame to resort to violence...

    Key tactics were (a) artillery fire from outside the range of the city defenses and (b) the landsknecht-lancer "instant army" loophole for rapid mobilization. The city was well fortified, so many landing combinations for this seaborne invasion were tried before I found a successful one. Then there was the problem of the Dutch counterattack from the eastern harbor.

    Enjoy these screenshots (just before, during, and after capture) and contemplate the parallels with Dien Bien Phu…. We won't tell my boss that I stayed up til 5 A.M. satisfying my compulsion. -Mage
