49 - A Gate of Hell

Volume 13, Issue 1 (#49) A Gate of Hell

“The defenses of Charleston are like a porcupine hide with the quills turned outside in.”

-- USN Rear Admiral Samuel F. Du Pont

After Gettysburg and Vicksburg, another Union victory in 1863 at Charleston, South Carolina, the very heart of the Confederacy, would send an unmistakable signal to the states in rebellion as well as the rest of the world that the rebel’s cause was lost and further fighting a waste of lives and effort.

“We have invisible aircraft, submarines, colossal tanks and cannon, unbelievably powerful rockets, and a bomb with a working that will astonish the whole world.... All my words are the purest truth.

54 - Monty’s D-Day

Volume 14, Issue 2 (#54) Monty's D-Day

Monty’s D-Day was first published in 1985 and well received. Now, four decades later, designer John Prados has smoothed and polished the MDD system, and added rules for parachute and amphibious landings, plus new German alternative responses. In the meanwhile, ATO published Bradley's D-Day, his companion game to Monty, as Campaign Study #3. Of course, everyone would like Monty’s D-Day to get a similar upgrade. The wild blue yonder hope would be that the two games could combine.

Now it's happening.
