Spotlight Articles

Outstanding articles that are not necessarily linked to one particular game, but may have broad appeal to gamers.

From Biplanes to Ballistic Missiles — The Career of General Thomas S. Power. “To Rule the Skies: General Thomas S. Power and the Rise of Strategic Air Command in the Cold War”. Book Review.

Spotlight Article Graphic

"...the more engaging part of the narrative is centered on Power’s efforts to transform the United States Air Force into a true aerospace force." Ray Garbee reviews To Rule the Skies: General Thomas S. Power and the Rise of Strategic Air Command in the Cold War, by Brent D. Ziarnick. Ray finds an often engaging and insightful book about General Power's efforts, which may have been ahead of their time, but are more relevant now. "How Power sought to do this is the stuff of a pulp science fiction fan’s dreams."

Interview with Sergio Shiavi Designer of Give Us Victories: The Chancellorsville Campaign from Dissimula Edizioni Currently on Kickstarter

Spotlight Article Graphic

A few years ago, Sergio Shiavi broke onto the scene with his new company called Dissimula Edizioni with their first Kickstarter called Radetsky’s March: The Hundred Hours Campaign and that game was then followed a few years later by From Salerno to Rome: World War II – The Italian Campaign, 1943-1944. Now comes the third game to Kickstarter which is a look at the American Civil War and the Chancellorsville Campaign involving the Union Army of the Potomac commanded by Joseph Hooker and the Armey of Northern Virginia commanded by Robert E. Lee and is called Give Us Victories: The Chancellorsville Campaign. The Players Aid reached out to Sergio and he was more than willing to give us an inside look at the design.

Battle for Russia - Game Turn Restrictions Summary

I'm finally getting to play this game, and am looking forward to it. There are a decent amount of "special rules" and restrictions that apply to either the Axis or Soviet player, depending on which turn it is. Rather than flipping back and forth in the rule book, I made a quick & dirty cheat sheet for myself which I have been using, and thought I'd share it. If anyone sees anything that's incorrect, please let me know via email at mark at grognard dot com. (updated 4/11/2020 to include rules for ignoring Rivers - Axis only on Turn 1; both sides on Turn 2)

French "Low Density" Blues in Ici c'est la France!

Brief strategy article written by Mark D. that explains the concept of "Troop Density" and examines how that level can have a big impact on French and FLN play in the early stages of the game. Ici c'est la France! was designed by Kim Kanger and published by Legion Wargames in 2009. Outstanding game!

Caesar: Rome vs. Gaul, published by GMT Games, is a fast-playing, easy-to-learn, two-player card-driven game on Caesar’s conquest of Gaul. One player plays Caesar as he attempts to gain wealth and fame in Gallia at the expense of the Gauls. The other player controls all the independent tribes of Gaul as they slowly awake to the peril of Roman conquest. Caesar: Rome vs. Gaul uses many of the core rules and systems used in Hannibal: Rome vs. Carthage.
