17 - Imperial Sunset

Volume 5, Number 1 (#17) Imperial Sunset

Imperial Sunset is a moderate level complexity simulation of the largest naval battle in history, the Battle of Leyte Gulf, on Oct. 23rd-26th, 1944. The historical result was a decisive defeat of the Imperial Navy, virtually eliminating it as a viable force for the remainder of the war. For the US Navy, it was a victory that was almost squandered due to command problems.

19 - Not War But Murder

Volume 5, Number 3 (#19) Not War But Murder

On June 3rd, 1864, three full Union corps launched a disjointed attack against well-entrenched Confederates. In just 8 minutes, the attack had petered out. Over 7000 Federals covered the Virginia soil.

A few minutes later, the orders came down to renew the attacks...

20 - A Fatal Attraction

Volume 5, Number 4 (#20) A Fatal Attraction

In the beginning, it was Churchill's idea... a way of putting old battleships to useful service, make a show of strength off Istanbul which would, he said, cause immediate regime-change and take Turkey out of the war. In the end, when the last Allied troops evacuated, the casualty count for both sides topped half-a-million. (And Churchill lost his job.)

21 - Day of the Chariot: Kadesh

Volume 6, Number 1 (#21) Day of the Chariot: Kadesh

Kadesh must be the greatest chariot battle of all time. Sources conflict and disagree, but there may have been as many as 5000 chariots in this twisted, confused, and bloody battle, fought to determine the borders between Egypt and the Hittite confederacy...

22 - Paukenschlag

Volume 6, Number 2 (#22) Paukenschlag

It was sort of like "Pearl Harbor" all over again, but worse. Twice as many allied deaths, some 400 ships lost, while the authorities resisted both the proven convoy system and the common-sense approach of simply turning the lights out on coastal cities. It could have been much worse...

23 - Guerra a Muerte

Volume 6, Number 2 (#23) Guerra a Muerte

Guerra a Muerte depicts the 14 year struggle that saw Spain's possessions in the hemisphere change from "almost everything not U.S." to "Cuba and Hispanola." The game title means, "War to the Death," and comes from a proclamation Simon Bolivar made to all Spaniards in Venezuela-- "support us or else."

24 - Deathride: Mars-la-Tour 1870

Volume 6, Number 4 (#24) Deathride: Mars-la-Tour 1870

With breech-loading rifles and artillery all around, and the first "machine guns" in mass operation, the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 had a very modern feel about it...but still there were vestiges of the old ways, especially at Mars-la-Tour, where both sides made powerful, desperate, and bloodily successful cavalry charges...."Deathrides" to the men within them...
