Despite its name Wargaming, the art of playing with toy soldiers, teaches one not to engage in the real thing, which is as H G Wells so succinctly put it:
"Great War is at present, I am convinced, not only the most expensive game in the universe, but it is a game out of all proportion. Not only are the masses of men and material and suffering and inconvenience too monstrously big for reason, butâ€”the available heads we have for it, are too small. That, I think, is the most pacific realisation conceivable, and Little War brings you to it as nothing else but Great War can do."
I have played Wargames all my life since their modern inception. I realise now that in in many I was re-living episodes from my past life memories. Madam des Armoises and myself present here an account of our table top battles for your edification and delight.
