  1. 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

  3. 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

  5. https://smallwarsjournal.com/jrnl/art/case-against-maneuver-warfare Has some WW2 examples but is mainly a modern recommendation.

  7. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40Kx9-xxnL0 A new and well made multi-part film that focuses on the search for exoplanets and how engineers might design a long trip to one. Not for everyone, but you are into science and technology - check it out. I guess it's fair to say the search for exoplanets has been a hot topic for 25 years now. It is still fascinating how they took a relatively new and narrow part of astronomy and weaved it into a compelling adventure. And it has lots more science than fiction. Kevin
  8. https://warontherocks.com/2019/03/tactical-art-in-future-wars/ The article weaves in WW1 and WW2 history as the writer comments on where the Army is heading today re: tactics. Scales used to appear on TV often ... not so much anymore. Kevin
  9. Many folks use it so FYI: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/03/08/citrix_hacked_data_stolen/
  10. There are more of these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5p7EeTcktVU
  11. "Using the recently developed Battle of Stalingrad Virtual Staff Ride, Army University Press developed a multimedia historical documentary of the battle through the lens of current doctrine." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1K0SFr2gPbc Excellent detail with computer graphics. Published July 2018. 53 minutes in length. Kevin
  12. https://www.macleans.ca/thai-cave-rescue-heroes/ Exclusive reporting on this amazing story that I though folks here might enjoy. It's long. Kevin

  14. As much as we old school wargamers would crave Barbarossa, it's probably out of our reach in any future rendition of the CM franchise. The same is true for the Pacific or France 1940. BFC designs products based on their personal interest and passion for the subject. Certain subjects are not in their wheelhouse. I would be surprised if the idea a editor pack for CM2 Barbarossa goes far since development costs would be high for what would be (with or without content) a niche product. Kevin
  15. There is also a nice link that opens up a 70 page PDF of Armor Magazine's tactical vignettes. It can be downloaded and or printed if one wanted to. Kevin
