The Generals Outline

The Generals

Prologue: Capt. William Depuy and the 90th Division in Normandy, summer 1944

  • The 90th Division in June 1944 was a killing machine... of its own men
  • Completely stalled out, even in the face of light German opposition
    • Requested replacements totalling > 100% in six weeks of combat operations
    • Average term of service of a lieutenant leading a platoon: two weeks
  • Because of this, Lt. Gen. J. Lawton Collins relieved Brig. Gen. MacKelvie and replaced him with Maj. Gen. Eugene Landrum
  • Also ordered the relief of two of MacKelvie's subordinates:

Episode 1: Angel Attack

  • OP is really good; I’d forgotten how good A Cruel Angel’s Thesis was
  • 2015
  • Flooded city (Tokyo?)
  • Row of tanks lined up (against what?)
  • Evacuation order
  • Boy standing at a phone booth – Shinji Ikari
  • Sees a blue-haired girl standing out of the corner of his eye; looks agains and she’s gone
  • Immediately after that – large explosion and we see the giant monster, under attack by a bunch of hover-jets
