    Summary

    All actions in war take place in an atmosphere of uncertainty, or the "fog of war." Uncertainty pervades battle in the form of unknowns about the enemy, about the environment, and even about the friendly situation. While we try to reduce these unknowns by gathering information, we must realize that we cannot eliminate them—or even come close. The very nature of war makes certainty impossible; all actions in war will be based on incomplete, inaccurate, or even contradictory information.
    Having said this, we realize that it is precisely those actions that seem improbable that often have the greatest impact on the outcome of war.

    Summary

    On May 7, 2013, the sixty-eighth anniversary of Steve Rogers’s death, the war record of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops was declassified. Overnight, their work in World War II became public knowledge: a “Ghost Army” that deceived and terrorised Axis forces with phantom troops, decoy inflatables, spoofed radio signals, professionally recorded sound effects—and the myth of Captain America himself. 

    Steve Rogers never got the serum. He doesn't have superhuman abilities. What he has is a paintbrush, some stage props, a stomach full of spite, and a Bucky Barnes.

    It's enough.

    Summary

    The first time Godfrey had laid eyes on Vladimir Horngaard, bloody, battered, and bursting through Argynvostholt’s great doors, he was rendered speechless. Godfrey had only recently been initiated into the Order of the Silver Dragon, only recently discovered Lord Argynvost’s true identity. He’d heard tales of the adventures the noble knights embark on to slay evil, and here was one of the greatest knights of the Order just returning from his.
