What's the difference between a battle field and a battle ground?

Splitting hairs but I'd guess battle ground refers to the entirety of the area of conflict to include all areas controlled and or contested by opposing forces up to and including air and sea whereas battlefield could be the specific area or portion of a battle ground encompassing a specific engagement which may or may not be part of a larger military action.

I think the current term for 3D fighting is called "battle space".


"And God said, Let us make man in our image …and let them have dominion …and all the creatures that move along the ground".

And that just might be to avoid the confusion of the two terms.

I thought it was called the theatre of engagement.

I suspect that those who engage the enemy don't concern themselves with whether they are on a battle ground or on a battlefield . The semantics may seem of little importance.


I'm just a soul whose intentions are good. O Lord please don't let me be misunderstood.

Is there a new prize on this site that gives $ to the person that post's the most?

Do you even sleep?


swampgas chili and schmidt beer makes for a deadly combo

You have to remember that 1 out of 3 Democratic Voters is just as dumb as the other two.

I believe that both spellings are correct and BOCO's spelling looks very sophisticated. Not only is he a great trapper, he's equally at home in a formal setting. Kudos BOCO, I enjoy your trapping posts... Great pictures!

For those of us that fought out of choppers we don't get places named for the fight and on the good side we don't have to debate what it should be called either.
