Do You Want Total War? (Book) -
Do You Want Total War? is a wargame-themed novel by Darren Kilfara about the study of history. Sean Lansbury, its first-person narrator, is a typical high school student with an atypical hobby: he likes to play Totaler Krieg, the grand strategic simulation of World War II. As he meditates on different aspects of history and tries to juggle his hobby with normal life in school, he falls in love with a girl in his Advanced Placement European History class and discovers who he is, what history means to him, and the extent to which you really can revisit and rewrite the past.
DYWTW will strongly appeal to wargamers while serving as a gateway to the hobby for non-wargamers – it speaks to armchair historians in the way that Nick Hornby’s Fever Pitch spoke to sports fans and reveals the narrator’s character as much through the history he studies as the discussions he has and the relationships he forms. And in DYWTW, studying history doesn’t just mean burying one’s head in a book – it involves shared conversations with friends, visits to websites like Consimworld, watching war movies, attending classes at school and discussing how history should be taught, and of course reimagining past wars and battles at the gaming table. For more information, visit DYWTW’s CSW Forum or the book’s Facebook and Twitter pages. Price: $17.09 (Paperback) or $9.99 (Kindle).

Maciejowice 1794 -
New from Strategemata. Maciejowice 1794 depicts the last battle of Thaddeus Kosciuszko. Poles were opposed by a Russian Army led by general Ivan Fersen. Mechanics of the game are based on random leader activations that decide sequence in which units fire, perform movement and melees. Almost all units can participate in ranged combat, not only activated ones, so the battle can rage on all parts of the map. Many rules are identical to Szczekociny 1794 ruleset - additional rules include Limbered Artillery, effectiveness of first salvo, firing upon enemy from rear or flank and collapse of fighting units. Price: $44.96 from Noble Knight Games.
Gettysburg 150 Review -
"Gettysburg 150" is a streamlined, easy to learn game of the 1863 battle - only 8 pages of rules - and is great for solitaire play.
