Based on extensive historical research*, I'm pleased to announce the (re)discovery of a method of wargame production that would dramatically reduce costs to the consumer.
*OK, not so…
For those who read my original post name under this post title, this will make sense, to the rest it will not.
I have removed the original post to avoid anymore upset to Paul and to avoid anyone else downloading his game for free ( and to those of you who have no idea about this, it was not me making his game available to download), as this would also be unfair to Paul and his business.
He was obviously unaware that it had been made freely available, and my…Continue

Finally got the game punched and clipped. This game from the Operational Combat Series covers the German blitzkrieg of France. I have put the Holland scenario on the table and am trying to make a go of it.

Any thoughts on this new TPS game? The cover at least is superb. I've never played a game on this operation, but I know Vae Victus has something out there.......this is definitely something I could sink my teeth into. I've been supremely hacked off at Phormio since I first read Thucydides: Idiot!!
Wittman’s first air race was in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1926 in which he placed second. Wittman’s first race plane was constructed in 1931 and made its debut at the National Air Races in Cleveland that year. It was initially powered by an American Cirrus engine.
