General Topsy ‘Brass’ Creatori’s Territorial Defensive Land Power Laser Blasting Watch Towers for
About this creation
Michael Rutherford's Excellent Wargame Contest-Decisive Action!

We looked back into the military history of our ancient Athenian ancestors concerning their solution to defending their land frontier with “watch towers” and “garrison stations”. Our modern 21st century watch towers are equipped with Infra-red Laser Blasters and high-tech communications. Each tower can house the laser and communications operational technical staff as well as, a small gorilla force of highly trained commandos. These “watch towers” are erected all along our land borders. Ain’t nobody gonna land sneak up on us!



Information for you Military History buffs is below:
In a reply to his article “Defense of the Athenian Land Frontier 404-322 B. C.”, in Phoenix, Vol. 43, No. 4, (Winter, 1989), pp. 294-301 Published by: Classical Association of Canada Stable URL: http://www.jstor.org/stable/1088297, the author, Josiah Ober writes the following …
“…in the fourth century the Athenians' strategic response to the threat of land invasion was different from the strategy employed during the Peloponnesian War. During the Peloponnesian War the Athenians relied primarily on the strength of their city-harbor fortification complex and did not attempt to exclude the enemy from occupying Attica.2 By the second quarter of the fourth century the Athenians had put into place a system of land defenses designed to stop invaders in the border zone; thus the "city fortress" strategy was extended into a strategy that regarded all Attica as a "fortress"… so "the years between 386 and 371 were particularly important in the de- velopment of the Athenian approach to defense ... Sphodrias' raid of 378 demonstrated the vulnerability of Attica to sneak attacks .... The solution was to elaborate the watch system and construct permanent garrison stations" (FA 213). Thus it was the period between about 378 and 343 that saw the full elaboration of the border defense system.”
