For those of you those of you who don't remember, issue 60 of WS&S was focused on airborne troops in WWII. As it happened, we had so many great articles for this theme, we didn't get to publish them all. We are now releasing one of these as a free to download PDF. Designed to recreate the experience of American paratroopers on D-day, it uses an interesting card-based system to add unpredictability and randomness. Visit our online extras page to download this scenario now.

As a taster, we've a full interview with the author Warwick Kinrade in the next issue (WSS 63).
You can expect a full 'Let's Play' report in WSS 64. We are literally dusting off our 15mm and will start playing Battlegroup Kursk tonight!

The Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy team will be running Mark Backhouse's 'Sudan 1884' game in 28mm, using the excellent Triumph and Tragedy rules set.
We aren't selling any of our magazines, but you can stop by the game to say hello or even join in (we firmly believe in participation games). Guy and Mark will all be happy to have a chat.
The Other Partizan is an excellent show and well worth attending with an excellent selection of both games and traders. See you there!

On Sunday the 27th of May, the Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy team will be hanging out at Partizan (located at Kelham Hall in Newark). We'll be running Mark Backhouse's 'Warwick at Sea', using the WAB naval rules from our website. We aren't selling anything, but you can stop by the demo game to say hello (or catch us when we're wandering around). Guy, Jasper, Christy and Mark will all be happy to have a chat.

Our books and magazines are firmly historical, but that doesn't mean we don't look to the future. In fact, we've been toying with ideas for new magazines for quite a while now. The problem is always picking a topic. Obviously, we want to launch a new magazine that will be of interest to as many readers as possible. To that end, we have designed a short and simple survey. We'd be very grateful if you could fill it out and help us design our (potential) new magazine. In return, we're raffling off five one-year paper subscriptions and ten one-year digital subscriptions for the magazine of your choice (Ancient Warfare, Medieval Warfare or Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy). All you have to do is complete the survey and leave us your e-mail address (don't worry, we won't use it for anything). This survey is open to anyone who wants to participate, so please tell all of your friends! The more feedback we can get, the better. You can send in your answers until June 15th. Take the survey now and tell us what kind of new military history magazine you'd like to see.
