For now, War Diary #4 has arrived. IMG_1890 copy 2A bit slow over here at the Front lately. Not to worry, lots of gaming goodness going on behind the scenes with a big backlog of posts to show for it. Working on getting those to you. . .

For now, War Diary #4 has arrived. I had my doubts about this magazine, but after reviewing the first couple of issues I can say I like where it is headed. A good value at the least. I’m a subscriber and issue #4 just arrived.

Here’s a look at the contents:

NEW PERSPECTIVES ON D-DAY VARIANTS by Michael Dorosh
I AM SPARTACUS:  Designer’s Thoughts on Spartacus by LTC (Ret) John B. Firer

PICKET DUTY:  A Game Review by John Poniske
LEGION OF HONOR:  Living the Life in Napoleon’s Army
DESIGN ANALYSIS by Gary Graber
