I am pleased to announce that I have reached an agreement with the magazine to publish my design on the battle of Arras in 1940.

The title has been announced as Counter Attack! Arras 21 May 1940.

I have also agreed to write the historical article that will appear in the same issue.

That's great stuff...

Did you design the game too?

My review article for A Most Dangerous Time(MMP) is coming out for #2 too. I've already submitted it to Olivier.

Yes, I designed the game. Olivier has done additional development, which I am aware of and endorse.

Thanks very much. In these tough economic times it is really appreciated.

My historical article is quite large: 17,200+ words, six maps, two tables, possibly some black and white photos. I put a lot of work into it, I hope everyone enjoys it.

My copy arrived today, so they are definitely available now. I can't comment on the game portion yet but the magazine is gorgeous and very interesting.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in wargaming and easily worth the cost as long as Counter-Attack! Arras is not completely, unredeemably broken. (My expectations for the game are much higher than that, however.)
