Good spot Hammurabi70

Sounds interesting and hitting many "countries" and across our epoch of interest.
£12.95 for 116 pages covering six war zones with "game" ideas looks a good deal. And solo play favourable.

I shall place an order.

I'd like to see a review but then I'd probably buy it anyway.

Got my copy today in post.

I hope John Curry (editor) doesnt take this as insult as its meant to be a compliment but its like somebody just did a Sotcw Xmas annual using our most recent editorial group and printers to put it together! Lovely softback with colour photo cover (like recent Journals) and stuffed full of B&W photos (historical and games) and maps galore! From 1920s to present day scenarios.

This weekend looks like being an early Xmas treat!

Buy it and enjoy.........

LOL, no worries- I know no rudeness was intended.
I've just opened it to check that nothing's falling out, but plan to look through it this weekend. I may put a word or two on here when I have had a read-through!

The Foreign Legion games is a fun game that could easily be adapted to Rif War, British in Sudan, or Somalia 1920s or Iraq 1920s.

Others are more attempts at simulation than game.

The 1920s Irish game may not be one for harmonius relations as many participants or their children are still holding memories of the atrocities but could be adapted to other bloodbaths like Palestine in earlt 20th century or the many interwar civil wars.

CarlL still reading and pondering.....
