  1. 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."
  2. Just to make everyone aware; i have not read it. Kevin https://www.historybookclub.com/catalog/product/9067-STALINGRAD-CITY-ON-FIRE
  3. https://notesonliberty.com/2019/11/03/the-myth-of-the-nazi-war-machine/ 18 reasons why the Axis was doomed to fail.

  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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

  9. 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
  10. https://warontherocks.com/2019/04/how-does-the-next-great-power-conflict-play-out-lessons-from-a-wargame/ Long and detailed. Kevin
  11. https://smallwarsjournal.com/jrnl/art/case-against-maneuver-warfare Has some WW2 examples but is mainly a modern recommendation.

  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. Many folks use it so FYI: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/03/08/citrix_hacked_data_stolen/
