Re: Who Are You?!?... And What Have You Done With My Wife?!?

I'd start to be a little worried, if I were you. I see these shows on TV where people are switched out with anything from robots to aliens. I'm just sayin'

Re: Playing through TOI Normandy Campaign solo

Sorry I missed this one, Ron....great write up! I never thought of building troop veteran experience based on medals earned. Interesting. I'd like to hear your thoughts on how this has been playing out. The Germans just suffering constant attrition is something I'm not sure I would be happy with. Gr...

Re: Non Fiction Writing

The content is superb.... written as you say, in more of a research (or finding or industry) paper, you meld facts and quotes very nicely. It not only reports on the situation, but educates the reader in a manner that is approachable, which I find the best part of the article. My advice is to concen...
