Just started getting into Strategy and Tactics magazine/games and stumbled across Albert Nofi, wow, what an amazing fellow! Would love to just sit down and chat.

You can read his books. Take a look around Amazon, then hit up your local bookstore.

I had a very brief email exchange with Al Nofi in the mid-90's. Nice guy. I loved his book on Gettysburg from Combined Books.

He actually worked with Mike Markowitz, Peter Perla, and a few others on a project for me as part of the Center for Naval Analyses...we were integrating commercial war-games into intelligence training at the Navy-Marine Corps Intelligence Training Center back in 1999...

Got to yak with him at CONNECTIONS conferences now and again. He wrote THE MARINE CORPS BOOK OF LISTS, so we often talked about that! Very interesting conversationalist as well as an accomplished game designer and author. Had a great take on military innovation (we often talk about the successes, not all the failures--and there were many of them!).

Wish someone would commission him to do an Imperium Romanum III.
