If I was really on the ball, I would have done a full-color battlescape of the Judeans vs the Selucids. Of course, the classic image from that conflict involves stabbing an elephant from underneath, (followed by the immediate squashing of the stabber, and the general who was riding the elephant) and I don't want to condone that sort of behavior.
No, I'm not kidding. Squishy's name was Elazar. He is forever remembered for being seriously hardcore.
And yes. Judaism is weird.
