Magazyn Modern War plus gra 1973: Yom Kippur War (wydanie Special Edition).
“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.
October War is a wargame of the 1973 Arab-Israeli War. There are two Theaters of Operation: Sinai and Golan, both portrayed as a point to point system (since most of the major actions were fought over key points or lines of communications). There are two players in the game, one commanding the Israelis, and the other the Arabs, and the game emphasizes critical factors of the conflict, but allows for large units to break down into smaller units, representing organizational flexibility and cohesion. The game is driven by the drawing of event markers which represent major tactical and strategic factors that affected the course of the campaign historically.
