  1. Well they say bad news happens in 3's https://www.express.co.uk/news/science/1258718/yellowstone-volcano-warning-explosion-norris-geyser-caldera-steamboat-spt Maybe your girlfriend is with child. 😀 (not meant to 37mm but a general snarky comment)
  2. Stop the madness and read this long and and very detailed analysis which voices my opinion ever since the they closed all the schools and almost every business in almost every state in America. It's a 30 minute must read. https://medium.com/six-four-six-nine/evidence-over-hysteria-covid-19-1b767def5894 or here now: https://www.zerohedge.com/health/covid-19-evidence-over-hysteria
  3. I think the writer is just listing the winners (and made a mistake in that Saving Pt Ryan was only nominated.) " and that doesn’t count all the other very good war movies that were nominated or won the Oscar for best director, actor, cinematography, writing, etc." Favorite war movies comes up a lot in forums, but I never saw a list of winners like he compiled.

  5. Does not look like you can view the full article for free. But it might be worth it for those very interested: https://defenceindepth.co/2020/01/10/in-pursuit-of-prokhorovka/ " ... this article explores Luftwaffe reconnaissance photographs taken in the days and weeks immediately following the battle of Prokhorovka."
  6. Just to make everyone aware; i have not read it. Kevin https://www.historybookclub.com/catalog/product/9067-STALINGRAD-CITY-ON-FIRE
  7. https://notesonliberty.com/2019/11/03/the-myth-of-the-nazi-war-machine/ 18 reasons why the Axis was doomed to fail.

  9. Eight years and no progress in this regard? What are we to think about BFC? The shame. The pain. I will have to send this thread to Cory Booker to get some action. Look at how he transformed Newark. He is a real go getter that Cory.
  10. It's not entirely clear. One article mentions Combat Mission and the other show a picture of it. No other details. https://www.wargamer.com/articles/slitherine-has-contracted-to-work-with-the-uks-defense-science-and-technology-laboratory/ https://www.gov.uk/government/news/commercial-gaming-industry-offers-creative-solutions-to-defence-analysts
  11. To learn this game, learn the editor and make small battles that you feel comfortable with and interested in. It's easy to do, I started with small tank battles and then added infantry etc.. Small QBs are good too. But I think learning the editor might be more efficient in the long run. It should not take more than a few hours, given all the resources now available, to be playing a cool battle. Kevin

  13. I wonder what the Vegas over under on when the structure will be open to the public would be? I think the media has been too pessimistic. I would lay odds < 3 years. I know I know. We are talking France. But still. The Cathedral is integral to their capital and its tourism. Kevin
  14. https://warontherocks.com/2019/04/how-does-the-next-great-power-conflict-play-out-lessons-from-a-wargame/ Long and detailed. Kevin
  15. https://smallwarsjournal.com/jrnl/art/case-against-maneuver-warfare Has some WW2 examples but is mainly a modern recommendation.
