It didn't happen in any of those places, however it did work in WW2, WW1 and The Civil War.It completely failed in Vietnam, Algeria, and Afghanistan. It won't work because our enemy is numerous, they hold the initiative, and we cannot afford to sustain large numbers of casualties.
The Soviets incurred over a half million casualties. Not only did they retreat, because the war cost to much, but because they were losing people left and right to combat causlties and sickness. That's out of 620,000 Soviet troops that served during the entire war. No, calling it a route wouldn't be a lie. The Soviets got their asses handed to them, plain and simple.Have you ever cracked a history book? The Soviets left after operations became too costly. To call it a rout would be a lie.
