While I've already decided on a scenario for my upcoming solo battle when the Grand Duchess and Young Master depart in early August, I've been pondering an article from long ago that appeared in an issue of The Courier that once graced my stack of hobby-related literature. The article in question dealt with six or seven tabletop scenarios that featured tactical issues and tasks commonly faced by generals during the Seven Years War period.
Sadly and foolishly, I got rid of (in other words, threw away. . . threw away!!??) a huge bunch of old wargaming magazines -- mostly old Miniature Wargames and Military Modelling from the early 1980s along with a few odd issues of The Courier -- about 15 years ago when I finished one program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Madison and left town to continue in another at the University of Minnesota with an interim year in Norway.
You know how it is before a move. Trying to cull the amount of "stuff" before packing everything up and moving it several states away to store in my parents' basement for the next 15 months or so. About 80-90 old magazines went in the purge, and what a shortsighted decision that was. Certainly not the first I've ever made. Hobby-related or otherwise. And (smacks forehead) most definitely not the last either.
Anyway, might one of you GD of S visitors still have the issue in question? And, if so, is there anyone among you who might be willing to scan the article, save it in PDF format, and e-mail it to yours truly? I would be terribly appreciative of your assistance.
