There is no other headline this week.  Peter Perla, the man who literally wrote the book on The Art of Wargaming, passed away over the weekend.  Funeral services will be in DC on Friday, January 26 and the obituary from the funeral home can be found here.  The wargaming world, both commercial and professional, weighed in all over the place, including a memorialization at PaxSims, and Brian Train’s note on his site.  His article about “Why Wargaming Works” with Ed McGrady is still referenced by many today.
