Guys, If you want some great PC Wargames, without a whole lot of chrome, try "Panzer General" and "Panzer
General II". Close Combat I & III (Normandy & Eastern Front) are pretty great too. Thanks to Panzer General
(and Guy Sager) a significant portion of my library is now devoted to books about the Wehrmacht with
particular emphasis on Orders of Battle and the Eastern Front.
These games are pretty old and require Windows 95 but I'll probably be playing 'em until my last breath.
If you're interested in the American Civil War, "R.E. Lee, Civil War General" is my humble recommendation
for a good place to start.
Maybe i'm preaching the obvious but Panzer General and Close Combat have gotten me through some tough
times in lousy climes and places. Best/Gene
