Doing the Nomonhan Campaign between the Soviets and the Japanese.
Nomonhan: Japan against Russia 1939 by Alvin D. Coox
Will also take a look at his Anatomy of a Small War on The Soviet-Japanese Struggle for Changkufeng in '38
Doing the early desert war (Italians vs. British primarly for starters anyway)
Dilemmas of the Desert War
Pendulum of War: the Three Battles of El Alamein
The Desert Generals
Anyone else out there have anything in the pipeline?
(Also a resurrection notice to the group!)
And Libya! Always wished to run a large campaign in that period. Any other books you could suggest with well researched order of battles? Better yet, a first hand account from any Italian gunners who were truly made of stern stuff ;)
The full 13 armies were snapped up in the first session, but we had to skip the second session because I was committed on the day to the state junior athletics championships as my daughter was competing.
But that is 3 Kingdoms Era (200 - 400AD) wheras my campaign is set in the late 1200s
I have set it up because I like the period - Go Sung (although actually I'm the Japanese)
Try Iron Hulls Iron Hearts
Also Benghazi Handicap Command Decision - a wargaming book has some really good stuff in it.
Take a look at this thesis online
Fallen Eagles: The Italian 10th Army in the Opening Campaign in the Western Desert
Nothing though on those doughty artillerymen
The author was an artillery officer with the doomed Italian 8th Army in the USSR and this was the story of his retreat after the Soviet Stalingrad counteroffensive.
Obviously, not about the Italians in the desert, but well worth reading anyway.
