Magazyn Modern War plus gra War by Television: Kosovo 1999.
“There’s a gap in military history magazines”, said Dr. Cummins, “There is no publication covering just the last 40 years. Military history did not end after the Vietnam War. No magazine focuses only on recent and current conflicts. No magazine shows you what might happen tomorrow – until now. Modern War: Military History in the Making will fill that gap.”
Modern War, available bi-monthly beginning in September 2012 at bookstores and newsstands nationwide such as Barnes & Noble, will explore the Cold War era, recent conflicts spanning from 1990 to present, as well as potential new wars. Articles will go in-depth to analyze the “how” and “why” of conflicts supported with copious maps, charts and photographs. Regular columns will examine weapons, systems and new arenas.
War by Television: If The US & NATO Had Invaded Serbia is a "what-if" simulation of the fighting that might have occurred across rump-Yugoslavia in the late summer or early autumn of 1999 if the Western alliance had decided on a ground war to settle the Kosovo crisis. WbT is a two -player wargame of lo w-to-intermediate complexity that posits this might-have-been war lasting about a month, about the maximum time before the i nvaders' dimin ishing supplies, and their loss of the pol itical wi ll necessary to continue the fighting , would force a truce if victory had not already been achieved in the field.
Each hexagon equals 7.5 miles (12 km .) from side to opposite side. Each game turn represents two days. The units of maneuver a re mostly brigades and divisions-size groupings for the Serbia ns; each with about 2,000 to 5,000 men, and about 25 to 50 armored fighting vehicles in the tracked mechanized units. On the NATO side, units are divisions, corps a nd a rmies, each containing about 9,000 to 25,000 men and up to 350 or so armored fighting vehicles. The invaders' a ir supremacy is built into several aspects of the rules (such as the CRT) and t herefore is not represented by separate aircraft unit-counters.
