    I am presently reading the excellent Barbarossa book by Dimbleby, recently released in paperpack and thought that I would get some games to the table that sat in the same time frame.

    I was surprised that I have eight such boardgames and I have put up a post on the blog that gives a short synopsis on each.

    The first (Battle for Moscow) has already visited the table and the second (Russia Defiant) is being played now.

    Interesting post. Hadn’t been aware of the book, now on the mental “to buy” list, so thanks.

    Wot? No “Drang Nach Osten,” then? 🙂

    Played that back when I was a student, as part of a group of eight players. Definitely worth playing once but a second go? Life’s too short.

    Norm, Your post is much appreciated, as I’ll be jumping into Barbarossa later in the year, and am gobbling up pretty much everything I can read on it at the moment.
