Game of War

 I am currently reading "Paddy Griffith's Game of War", a volume in John Curry's History of Wargaming Project.

It is an interesting read, although very little of it speaks to the sort of wargaming that I have ever done in practice. I did come across this suggestion though: "...use an active umpire, or in other words a man who is either knowledgeable in the rules, or who invents them as he goes along...". Spooky or what?


  1. I am interested in your comment that little in this book corresponds with your own wargaming experiences...could you expand on that slightly?

    1. Yes, for sure. I shall definitely be giving my views on the book when I have finished it.
