I was revisiting the old Time-Life WW2 series that my mother bought for me many years ago, for maybe a dime apiece at a yard sale. Was reading the volumes on the Battle of the Atlantic, CBI, North Africa, and Italy. I've gotten on a kick to learn Darwinian evolution, so I've put my WW2 and American Civil War reading on hold for a while.

Mostly been reading magazines. Don't read books very much anymore, the magazines are so good nowadays.Though, there is one book I'm interested in, "The Perfect Wreck". It's about the USS Constitution. I believe it's the onle sailing ship still commissioned by the US Navy.

WW2 books, magazines, and even movies make me want to play this game pretty much more than any other game. Can't finish a WWII VHS or DVD movie that I've seen already without having a tremendous desire to play this game. WinSPWW2 and WinSPMBT does this best. You can pretty much use any country that you can think of, old stuff (since 1930) and modern stuff too (if you have WinSPMBT). You can get right into it! Simple to play. Video games based on WWII just doesn't do it. Long live the hex!

So was the first one. Any movie whose title sounds like a video game (Airborne Creed, WTH?) is bound to suck.

The first one sucked, too. There was a pretty good opening scene showing the Malmedy Massacre, I don't know how accurate it was, though.
