The Quest for the Wargaming Holy Grail

I've noticed that we don't often hear about a proliferation of titles on the same subjects quite like we used to. Of course, these days, the diversity of genres and subjects is simply staggering--had someone told me fifteen or twenty years ago that card-driven wargames on World War One, especially one on the Middle East and Turkish theater (PURSUIT OF GLORY), were all the rage, I would have not believed it.
