Interesting that I was playing "dauntless" in 1981 and met Lou Zocchi several times and I never even heard of this. Any intel on this? Mr Kelly is obviously impressed with them.

Mr Kelly,
Thanks for the links. I do vaguely remember the basic one now. I had Zochi's Flying Tigers and Luftwaffe and thought they were good games. ( Actually still have them.) He was an interesting guy. Had a shop outside of Keesler AFB.

Thanks again

Understood: I still play 'Flying Tigers' – one of his better designs and easily adaptable to miniatures.

Further: still prefer the original Luftwaffe as opposed to the DG re-boot.

All of which pale, in my humble opinion, to his Battle of Britain game of which I have several copies/editions.

Lou was in fact a TSgt in the Air Force.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane Joe

Marc: Agreed! I have two copies – one of which is set up in my game room now.
