|Battles Magazine Issue #8|
Battles is an independent wargame magazine published by Olivier Revenu and includes reviews, game analysis, historical articles, scenarios and player aids. The magazine is published quarterly and produced to a high standard, both in terms of content and presentation, each issue typically coming with a full game wargame included.
This issue's game is Wagram, 1809 a simulation of the battle between Napoleon and Archduke Charles (Karl) during the campaign on the Danube over the 5th and 6th of July 1809.
With my subscription, I also received a copy of Night Drop, which covers the first hours of the Allies airborne assault over Sainte Mère Eglise on June 6th 1944. One player takes on the role of the U.S. 82nd Airborne Division and the other takes the German ground units in the surrounding areas.
