Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
Military history, Religion, spiritual interests, Reading the "Grand Strategy of the Byzantine Empire by Edward Luttwak. Fascinated by Military History and the terrible historical fact that Mankind since civilization began /generates/begets armed conflicts/wars on an almost continuous scale. Especially modern 20th Century Military History which involves such mass destruction and loss of human life. How can we justify this terrible fact.
Welcome to the CONSIMWORLD Social Website, Danny! From the looks of it, you seem to be a huge fan of strategic WWII in Europe wargames! WiF is, of course, exceptional and WAR BETWEEN THE STATES is simply the best overall game on the strategic prosecution of the Civil War (not that there's a lot of competition in the monstergame department there!). Hope you like Luttwak's latest--he's come a long way over the years.
