VG The Korean War (1986) PP,BKB $45 - two map operational-level game of the first year of the Korean conflict. One of the few full-size games on the topic. Medium complexity. - a Joe Balkoski design.

Several anecdotal articles. It is interesting to see how Command has evolved from a Ty Bomba vehicle to something a little more sophisticated. It's been six months since the last issue so let's hope the end of the line has not been reached! Articles include: * Ty Bomba's supporting article for the game on the initial period of the attack (11 pages). * an examination of the Russo-Polish War of 1920 (10 pages). * James Werbaneth briefly looks at the air elements of the Condor Legion in Spain, 1936 (2 pages). - complete, in collectable condition if you don't want to play the game and/or think Command has breathed its last.
