20 - A Fatal Attraction

20 - A Fatal Attraction

Volume 5, Number 4 (#20) A Fatal Attraction

In the beginning, it was Churchill's idea... a way of putting old battleships to useful service, make a show of strength off Istanbul which would, he said, cause immediate regime-change and take Turkey out of the war. In the end, when the last Allied troops evacuated, the casualty count for both sides topped half-a-million. (And Churchill lost his job.)

Volume 6, Number 2 (#23) Guerra a Muerte

Guerra a Muerte depicts the 14 year struggle that saw Spain's possessions in the hemisphere change from "almost everything not U.S." to "Cuba and Hispanola." The game title means, "War to the Death," and comes from a proclamation Simon Bolivar made to all Spaniards in Venezuela-- "support us or else."

24 - Deathride: Mars-la-Tour 1870

Volume 6, Number 4 (#24) Deathride: Mars-la-Tour 1870

With breech-loading rifles and artillery all around, and the first "machine guns" in mass operation, the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 had a very modern feel about it...but still there were vestiges of the old ways, especially at Mars-la-Tour, where both sides made powerful, desperate, and bloodily successful cavalry charges...."Deathrides" to the men within them...

Volume 8, Issue 1 (#29) Buffalo Wings

Historians, air aficionados, and gamers may have friendly disagreements when asked, "What was the best Allied fighter of WWII?" There seems to be much easier agreement on the question, "Which was the worst?" Answers always seem to include the stubby Brewster "Buffalo" near the top of any list.

30 - The Lash of the Turk

Volume 8, Issue 2 (#30) The Lash of the Turk

With the fall of Jerusalem, Europe learned a new synonym for boogeyman—"Turk." The Ottomans recaptured the Holy Land and gradually spread into Europe like a slow tide, including capturing Constantinople and the Balkans. Presuming extreme cruelty, various European leaders called for new crusades, to free fellow Christians from "the Lash of the Turk."

The Big Push

The Big Push


In the summer of 1916, the Allies launched a mighty "Big Push" to take pressure off the French at Verdun, rip open the Western Front, and bring the war to an end. The offensive opened badly, with the British taking 60,000 casualties on the very first day!

2013 Annual - La Bataille de Vauchamps

2013 Annual - La Bataille de Vauchamps

“Come. We must repeat the campaign in Italy.”

-- Emperor Napoleon to Berthier, 1814

For the casual reader who looks into the “100 Days” and the Waterloo Campaign, one of the early questions is, “Who (the heck) is Grouchy?” Followed up by wondering why (on earth) Napoleon would give this guy a third of his army and depend on him to keep Blücher’s Prussians far from Wellington....
