I recently added a new article to the Line of Departure Online Features site.  This is another military history project, and a pretty extensive one, dealing with Patton's campaign in Brittany immediately after the Normandy breakout.  Long-planned, it was supposed to secure the port capacity of the…

This year as an optional assignment for my political science class on peacebuilding and civil conflict, I gave my students the option of writing an interactive story rather than the usual research papers using Inklewriter. Four groups decided to do so, and the result is four online…

Teutoburger Wald 9AD

Teutoburger Wald depicts the battle which took place between three Roman Legions under the command of Govenor Varus, and a confederation of Germanic tribes.

Varus was en-route to winter quarters when he and his three Legions were caught in a cunning trap. Surrounded on all sides, this was to be a battle of pure survival.

Plus, Tom reviews Eclipse, both the new iPad version and the original boardgame.

Unboxing B-29 Superfortress

In my just-released episode 7 of The Board Game Show podcast, I un-box B-29 Superfortress by Legion Wargames:

In the late 80’s I hovered over an imaginary bomber crew and conducted make-believe, yet mostly historical missions over WWII Germany. My heart raced as ME 109s and FW 190’s strafed my flying fortress. I worried…
