How did war become a game?

    That was really interesting. Thanks for sharing.

    As a kid in the early nineteen-sixties, I came across a landscape-format book at my local library in Borehamwood, England, which was called Kriegspiel and written by none other than H G Wells, perhaps some fifty years before. All I can recall of it now was it had many photographs in black and white of Kriegspiel tables and games in progress.

    I found it utterly fascinating and took the book out several times. Sadly, none of my fiends were interested or I might have become an avid Kriegspiel player.

    Little Wars is the game of kings — for players in an inferior social position.
