Issue 97:
Battle for Galicia, 1914 by Michael Resch

This game models the opening campaign of World War One fought between Imperial Russia and Austria-Hungary on the plains of Galicia and southern Poland. Simulated are the concurrent offensives launched by the two belligerents; the Austro-Hungarian thrust northward direction Lublin and the Russian concentric attack aimed at Lemberg. This is an easy to learn game system combines simple mechanics (although not simplistic) with a historically accurate map and order of battle; the synthesis of the maneuver, effectiveness recovery and combat resolution sub-systems highlight the important aspects of the campaign. The game system is not only fun and exciting to play but offers the gamer a true insight into this fascinating little-known campaign.


Issue 98:
First Blood in the Crimea: The Battle of the Alma, 20 September 1854 by Ty Bomba

This game uses the alternating-actions system introduced here in Wagram. That system places the emphasis on players’ mastery of overall operations rather than on the minutiae of tactics. In effect, players role-play each side’s supreme commander, making the decisions those two men would make rather than the whole command chain, as is often the case many complex tactical-level games.


Issue 99:
Assault on Tobruk, Rommel Triumphant, 20 June, 1942 by Stephen Newberg

From march to December of 1941 the forces of Rommel's Afrika Korp surrounded the Allied held fortress port of Tobruk on the Libyan coast of North Africa, but were unable to subdue it. On the 20th of June in 1942 Rommel got another chance at a cut off Tobruk as the Allies retreated from the loss of the Gazala line battles. This time Tobruk fell, and it did so in a swirling action lasting less than a single day.


Issue 100:
Bloody Retributions: The Battle of Inkerman, 5 November 1854 by Ty Bomba

This is a two-player grand-tactical simulation – easily adapted for solitaire play – of the largest Russian offensive of the Crimean War. Even so, both players have the necessity of both attacking and defending. It uses the alternating-actions system introduced here in issue no. 93’s Wagram and issue no. 98 Alma games.
