"...and so it was that in the third month of the 2020 campaign against the Lions of Nequiel the entire force of Jerusalem Dragoons was lost on the plains of Jericho. Swarms of anti-tank guided missiles descended upon the doomed machines and the sky went dark as the smoke billowed from the vehicles struck and on fire. At the end of the day the company was no more. But fate is a fickle thing – it turns and twists and often depends on the smallest of things, such as one young private, wounded and dying in the wreck of his mauled M113 APC."
