1st Indochina War (Dien Bien Phu), 2nd Indochina War (Vietnam, Tour of Duty), Post 9/11 Iraq & Afghanistan (Modern Wars), Soviet-Afghan War, Falkands, Spanish Civil War, Winter War [is this outside WW2], Korean War...
There are mods that give you African Bush Wars, Arab-Israeli Wars, Hypothetical Cold War etc.
This is the reason why I like Squad Battles a lot.
Oh don't forget WinSPMBT where you can simulate almost any of these and make up your own confrontations.
2. Cold War (inc. Vietnam & Korea if this is historic only? Is this cheating extras in? )
3. Arab-Israeli Wars (could be included as part of #2 )
I suppose that would be the ones I'd currently be on the lookout for. Nothing too unsual.
Where's your list DB?
Well I wasnt so much reffering to wars in general so much as to individual battles. I think there are just particular situations that have just caught my interest whether it be the tactical situation or the weapons or whatever.
So among the less obscure actions
I have read a couple of books on Lettow-Vorbeck and find that history and some of those engagements facinating so first I would probably go for
1. the battle of Tanga
Next I would go for a proper representation of the battle of
2. La Drang - both xray and albany -
have always been fascinated by that engagement and the situation
My last would have to be a bespoke representation of
3.Dien Bein Phu
So what I mean is a proper full game of the subject - not something cobbled together as a best fit representation in something like TOAW. So kind of operational / tactical - but a games that represents the conflict in its entirety and its own individual nuances - "Chrome" as it used to be called - perhaps still is. Something you could do with baord wargames with a few rules paragraphs but with computers is somewhat more diffcult to bespoke.
