GEORGE WASHINGTON'S NEMESIS: The Outrageous Treason and Unfair Court Martial of Major General Charles Lee during the American Revolution Many historians have been quick to malign Lee's performance at Monmouth, for which he was convicted by court-martial for not attacking and for retreating in the face of the enemy. This was a miscarriage of justice, stresses McBurney, for the evidence clearly shows that Lee was unfairly convicted and had, in fact, by retreating, performed an important service to the Patriot cause. The guilty verdict was more the result of Lee's having insulted Washington, which made the matter a political contest between the army's two top generals – only one of them could prevail. $33.00 USD

MAGAZINES WITH WARGAMES…

 AGAINST THE ODDS #50: Die Atombombe

AGAINST THE ODDS #50: Die Atombombe Magazine includes Die Atombombe – a card game for 2 to 5 players, each representing a faction inside German government, industry, or military circles that sought use research institutes to start work on a nuclear program. Acting through the Director of each center, players will need to size matters up, recruit other scientists, acquire scarce resources, (plus spy on their rivals, this is the Third Reich remember) and certainly go all out if they hope to develop atomic weapons.

Progress is slow at first – the Russians are far away and the enormity of the effort seems clear early on. And there are always other weapons more desperately needed now. As the course of the war darkens for Germany, players may see more official support being thrown their way, or engage in fruitless bickering among themselves over the best theories and resources required to succeed. Their finest scientists may even be drafted to serve as simple soldiers at the front! $40.00 USD
