Good point old Sport!

There is a bit of a problem here for the business -- not only was WWI a disaster on roll-out, (much much better now). But AACW has gotten better and better and better -- it's still well worth buying. It's the reverse of 'planned obsolescence.' Which is, by the way, one of the reasons for AGEOD to k...

Not certain I will risk it again

At the risk of being considered a cheapskate...I am not certain I will risk the investment in RUS. The problems I still experience with World War One Gold mitigate against me buying another AGEOD game......my position being - "wait until it is in the remainer bin in two years time after necessary im...

The circumstances and results of such a war were not fully understood-certainly not by the various civilian populations who were jubilant at the opening of hostilities.

Maybe we should start a new Condom use thread????

The German military was the first to promote condom use among its soldiers, beginning in the later 1800s. Early twentieth century experiments by the American military concluded that providing condoms to soldiers significantly lowered rates of sexually transmitted diseases but I believe that social c...

Also the Schlieffen plan did not take into account the diplomatic changes that had taken place since its inception. Like all the other plans made prior to WWI, they were also faulty in the sense that each antagonist thought that they were going to fight a war close to the Franco-Prussian war. But i...
