Great War: World War One Battles of 1918

Great War Design Notes
World War One Battles of 1918
1918 saw great changes in the warfare of the Western Front. Russia pulled out of the war, freeing thousands more German troops to push the Allies back huge distances. The Allied counteroffensives, with the new tanks, evolving tactics, and the arrival of the Americans, forced the Germans back towards their own borders and defeat.

Last year Battlefront marked the centenary of the start of World War One by releasing a set of rules for British and German forces, with issue #324 of Wargames Illustrated. Now those rules have been expanded to a 72-page book, including the Americans and French. Great War writer Wayne Turner shares his design notes, telling you exactly what you can expect to find in this latest edition.

Mid War Is Going Digital
We are pleased to annouce that we plan to add the Mid War Intelligence Briefings North Africa and Eastern Front toForces Of War, the Flames Of War online company builder, and the Flames Of War Digital iPad app in the next few weeks. They will have had some work done on them, to integrate the relevant updates from Lessons From the Front, and to make them fully compatible with Version 3.

Flames Of War Digital
Eastern Front

We support Mid War and we definitely still love the period. It was, after all, where we started when Flames Of War was launched. It is very much in our plans to return to Mid War as soon as we can give it the love and care that it warrants. In the meantime, this smaller measure will ensure that it stays as easy as possible for players to enjoy Flames Of War in this period.
