|I have a monster wargame project which is starting about rightnow. It is the simulation of a conflict in the Aegean which sees Greece and Turkey as the starting actors. I will be posting about the operations, and if someone gets interested, any suggestions regarding operations to undertake, force management and everything else will be nore than welcome. Comments and criticism is welcometoo. All the units have fictional names, exept for some naval units. Any other denominations which by chance matches its real counterpart is accidental.
