"One might suppose from this blog title that rose tinted glasses have transported me back to a ‘better’ wargaming time...". Norm Smith, in his Battlefields & Warriors blog, takes some mildly whimsical inspiration from rereading a couple of classic miniatures titles from the 70s. As always, Norm has some interesting insights: "…modern authors have not felt tied to copying actual military manoeuvres to get the same result."

75th Anniversary D-Day A Millennials Guide – Book Review

Spotlight Article Graphic

"I would make this book required reading in every high school and college history course." Rick Martin reviews 75th Anniversary D-Day A Millennials Guide, a book that is a badly needed effort to reach the generation that knows "…less about history than any other generation for the last 100 years…".

Introduction, Variants, Short Campaign and Designer Responses (PDF)

Article by Keith Martens for the "Canadian Wargamers Journal" back in 1992. Includes a brief intro to the game, some variants and a short campaign scenario. In addition, it includes designer Fred Schachter's feedback on these changes. As an added bonus, Keith Martens provides "General Strategy", Ken Hole contributes a "Judaean Strategy" section, and Keith concludes with a "Roman Strategy" section. This is a must-read 17 page article for fans of the game. Editor's note: This article was originally posted on Grognard as 14 separate graphic files (missing pages 6 and 7) and I wanted to combine it into a single PDF. During the process, I took some time to review the article and thought so highly of it that I wanted to draw some attention to it again. Enjoy.
