Looks kind of interesting, and a topic I'd love to know more about


but I'm hesitant given the usual lack of development that S&T can put into their games, and the pervasive issue of just how well-thought-out Miranda's designs can be...

That could be interesting as there are not that many games on the topic. Tanga from Legion is quite good although it only covers a relatively small, and for the British, disastrous, battle.

Hmm, I think I might look into that.

I used to, back in the early days of SPI. Too darned expensive now.

Just checking back - I had issue 24 which was a Drive on Moscow game, but my subscription kicked in with issue 65 'Cobra' and the last one I had was issue 89.

Wow, the game version is pricey. Is it worth getting without the games?
