According to the Cambridge Dictionary, the word ‘gambit’ is defined as ‘a clever action in a situation that is intended to achieve an advantage that usually involves taking a risk’.

During Operation Acid Gambit, a disastrous rescue mission that was only supposed to take four and a half minutes and be one of the opening operations of the 1989 US invasion of Panama, Delta Force found themselves in a situation so sticky that it was sheer luck, rather than tactical gambits, that got them out alive.

The idea behind the Volkswagen, or “people’s car,” was initially conceived in the early 1930’s, before ultimately coming to fruition by the outbreak of the Second World War. Adolf Hitler, the Fuhrer of Nazi Germany, commissioned a vehicle that would be affordable, practical, and most important of all, available to every member of society in the ‘Grossdeutschland’. The general production of the Volkswagen ultimately stalled during the Second World War, however, as the Third Reich was forced to mobilise its national industries in order to keep up with the demands of their military efforts.

Since the beginning of civilization, humans have been inventing tools and weapons.

Although the use of a spy balloon in 2023 was considered startlingly primitive, these lighter-than-a feather sacks caused an entire ‘balloonomania’ when they first began being introduced in eighteenth century France. Pilots risked their lives to prove their creations could be used for flight, with Jean-Pierre Blanchard even throwing away his trousers and jacket to keep his balloon afloat as he and his friend crossed the English Channel airborne. Yet, it wasn’t long before these marvellous spectacles, once wondrous spheres of colour in the sky, would be given additional roles. Ones as innovative tools for destruction, terror and intelligence gathering. Well… occasionally, of course.
