It has been a while since I have played any non-computer wargames, but I have been in the mood lately. In the last couple of years I sold off a lot of my collection due to lack of space and lack of time. I am going to be flying in Mike Lam's B-17 campaign again this week which is always fun. I will probably also play around with the 1st 2 ASL starter kits, Patton's Best, C&C Ancients, and Combat Commander in the near future.

I have been playing a lot more computer wargames lately as well. I have been playing on the ladders at theblitz.org in both the Campaign Series ladder and the Squad Battles ladder. Eventually I will wade into the ladders for Grigsby's War in the East, and the ladders for Tiller's Panzer Campaigns. Playing PBEM was actually pretty fun and made me wish I had started playing on the ladders years ago. On the campaign series ladder I have been a couple of games with a guy who is currently stationed in Afghanistan. The 1 Squad Battle game I played so far had my US troops thump the Taliban in the battle of Wanat. Not that I did much other than try to restrict the movement of his units until the 2 AH-64s en-route arrived. I also played a battle as the Soviets in Combat Mission: Afghanistan, and worked through the tutorials for Command Ops: Battles from the Bulge and Grigsby's War in the East.

On the reading front I have recently read Bing West's The Village, Sidney Fay's Origins of the World War, and Lind's Maneuver Warfare Handbook. I am about finished with Adolf von Schell's Battle Leadership, and am currently working through Dupuy's Genius for War, and Clark's Barbarossa.

Reading through that now makes it sound like I have a lot more time to do things than it feels like with the wife, 18 month old daughter, and a job. :-)

Usually I end up trading sleep for time to pursue hobbies after everyone else is asleep.

Where do you find the time???

Gerald, sounds like you are getting some healthy activity going on the hobby front. I'm probably going to be turning my own attention to a bit more reading as well. Right now I'm focusing on literature on the Salerno landings.
