Default LTC Whittlesey's Lost Battalion

When your battalion is cut off and being hammered from all directions, I suppose that could reduce events to a very small war.

For those with WaPo subscriptions,

On Veterans Day, a lost battalion, a war hero and a heartbreaking suicide

Or just give this a read.
A scrimmage in a Border Station
A canter down some dark defile
Two thousand pounds of education
Drops to a ten-rupee jezail
