Medic! The Role of Medical Treatment in Wargames

Spotlight Article Graphic

"Let’s say you’ve just secured a town from the Soviets, but took a fair number of casualties in the process." Sean Couture considers the medical and psychological aspects of combat and how some games strive to integrate them, which "…reminds players that the strength of their strategies and by extension their armies [is] weighed in how responsibly they handle their forces and how many lives they unnecessarily throw away."
