New Article in Line of Departure Online Features, On the US Army's 77th Infantry Division

I just posted a new article to Line of Departure Online Features.  This one covers one of my personal favorite units of World War II, and one of the most effective of the Pacific War, the United States Army's 77th Infantry Division.  Not a traditional elite like the Marines, or a band of hand-picked and…

I've Been Diced! episode 61: Worthington Games

I drop by the HQ for Worthington Games to talk about their wargames, past, present, and future. Forged In Fire, Band Of Brothers, Cowboys, Hold The Line, and others -- what kind of games does Worthington choose to publish? And how does a small publisher find its niche in today's market? Plus, this episode's "Game Off The Beaten Path" is a world-famous fantasy writer's design.
