The Megablitz archive

While preparing for the recent "A Battle Lost?" game, I noticed various photos and articles going back to the mid-1990s.  Perhaps you'd like to see some of this, after all - I've endured it - why should you be spared?
I have already posted reports and photos of some games which pre-date the blog*, but that still leaves the following list.  I have created a poll (top-right-ish) where you can make your preferences known.
A US bombing raid makes life difficult for some Panzergrenadiers.
Sicily, 1943 (or was it 2008?)

Various articles from 'Kleiner Panzerbehfelswagen' - an informal newsletter I ran for 11 issues in the 1990s.

* - notably Kursk (North) and the 1940 Dyle Plan
** - be aware that quantity and quality of material may vary.

I'd vote for all of them ... but as I seem to have lost my copies of 'Kleiner Panzerbehfelswagen' it would get my top vote!

All the best,

Thanks Bob - A lot of the KP stuff hasn't aged all that well but a few bits are still worth reading again.

Interested in the lot. Quality doesn't matter (much). I just like to see what other war gamers are doing.

"Quality doesn't matter..." Just as well!

I'm always interested to read your travails :)
