August AAR

I don’t usually chime in on Russ’ parade here but for my money (and I have none sorry Russ) this has got to be one of the best ones he has put out.  If you are into Chain of Command he has it covered with two different AAR for different player levels.  For me the best part of this month’s AAR was the section on Wargame Design.  I really enjoyed reading the different insights of designers such as Frank Chadwick.
