Battles #8 - Wagram

Battles Magazine Issue #8
My copy of Battles #8 finally arrived today along with two games Wagram, 1809 and Night Drop. Very excited! 

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.

If you want to take a look at Battles Magazine, they have published issue #3 as a free pdf download. It's well worth checking out. Be aware though, should you decide to subscribe, stay patient as the magazine can take a while to arrive. All good things and all that! :)
