The "people" at the Fox Den is my son James Lowry.

He is putting all my old magazines and booklets online and adding his "Fox Hole" comments about how they came to be, what else was going on in the hobby at the time, etc. It's a labor of love, mostly.

Incidentally, so as not to mislead anyone, the booklet about Battle of the Bulge is about the old Avalon Hill Gaming Co. board game, strategies for it, etc.

Wargamer's Guide to The Battle of the Bulge

The second booklet in Guidon Game's Wargamer's Guidebook Series came out around April 1972, and reprinted articles from The Avalon Hill General, International Wargamer, and Panzerfaust, collected by Don Greenwood.

These are all about the original 1965 Avalon Hill release of the game, though there is also a review of Guidon Games' variant Operation Greif.
