My father-in-law was an advisor to the S. Korean Cavalry at the start of the Korean war. He witnessed charges against T-34 tanks by soldiers armed with sabers, M1911A1's and Enfield 30-06 rifles. They did have one horse drawn 37mm anti-tank gun, but the terrain was restrictive. Fortunately he was wounded early and made it back to Japan. Mrs SLB was born two years later!

Low-tech is sometimes the best method.
It has always worried me that we, and other modern nations have become too dependent upon high-tech electronic gadgets, particularly in the military. One blast of EMP from a nuclear detonation, and the circuits are toast. It's good to see that we have not abandoned the old ways.
