The Incorrect Art of War [Episode 33] – The Terminal Phase

By A J Summersgill and Jim H Moreno


"Oh, that’s one’s easy!" exclaims the Doctor, and his hand reaches out to punch the option for Overland. You grab his hand just before he hits the button and slowly move it away from the keyboard.

"No, my Lord, it’s Overlord, trust me."

"Are you sure about that? I mean, it’s easy to get them confused…"

Well, you know, confuse the enemy and all that…no? Oh well, go ahead then, but on your head be it if it’s wrong"

Doctor Sinister visibly cringes as you hit the option for Overlord. There is a small chiming sound and the screen display changes as the machine processes.

"Oh. Looks like we’ve got to wait for another question. How many of these are there? We’ve only got three minutes left…"

"The program was set to ask up to four questions, but never less than two. If we’re lucky, this might be the last one."

"Well, we should be OK then if they are all as easy as the last one…"

The screen display changes.

"What does it say?"

"Oh this is ridiculous…talk about a steep curve. During the Vietnam War, what was the real name of the lady known as "Hanoi Hannah" who broadcast North Vietnamese propaganda over the radio? Trinh Thi Ngo or Trinh Tho Ngi."

If you think the answer is Trinh Tho Ngi, go to page 11.
