BOOK REVIEW posted on 20 JUN 2002 by Scott Parrino
"This 218-page book is not for people beginning to study the Korean War. Neither is it for wargame designers or players looking for information; nothing that happened in that frozen cockpit can be quantified. However, both groups should read this book to get a feel for what those Marines underwent in that horrible chapter of the Forgotten War."

After various gold, platinum, and "game of the year" editions, The Operational Art of War - A Century of Warfare seems to be the all-encompassing complete package. If you have been putting off purchasing any of The Operational Art of War products waiting for this date: rejoice, it has come. If you're missing either The Operational Art of War: Volume 1 (World War II and Korea), or The Operational Art of War: Volume II (modern), resist the lure of the bargain bin editions; this is the one you want. If you are an active play-by-email player, updates to the game engine will require ownership of A Century of Warfare when playing against like-equipped opponents.

Most of the problems have gone, there is a new engine and currently there are few wargames that can match The Operational Art of War`s range, depth and sophistication.
