Thanks for sharing.

I look forward to reading about this with interest, and hope they provide some tips on how it's done, and not just what was done.

Just FYI, it has already been posted on Game Design and History of Wargaming. It should have all the coverage it can get.

Great find…downloaded the PDF, but I decided I want the book itself. Probably longer than I can stand in PDF format.
