10th Anniversary of the Battle at Le Port

In 2006 nearly 200 soldiers (around 100 on each side) fought a heroic and dramatic battle at Le Port. Many soldiers on both sides died. The battle is seen through the eyes of platoon leader Lt Maximilian Qubit. Awed by the horrors of war and the fragility of a soldiers life, he kept using binoculars in stead of his rifle, while commanding his platoon into the small town. His account is universally regarded as being ‘anti-war’ in nature. After the battle he stated he had seen no good or bad but only soldiers, most of them dead.
