A bit late with this one as the news really comes from last week, but we’re on a bit of catch up here at Wargamer.com this morning.

Most PC gamers – my sons included – impetuously eschew the manual in favor of diving right into the tutorial or the proceedings themselves. Not me! I want to slowly savor every inch of those printed pages, sometimes reading the instructions twice before daring to click on that “start” button.

We can usually find a military anniversary or two in any given year, however, those which are round numbers always seem to be much more significant – especially when you are dealing with centuries. So we are currently in the midst, and shall be for 3 more years, of World War 1 centennial anniversaries. But those are not the only ones. In addition we have the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo and the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt.
