Wargames Illustrated 263
I've just received my copy of Wargames Illustrated for September - Issue 263. As a subscriber it comes through my door before it hits the shelves (not sure when the official release date is). Once again I'm impressed with the quality of the articles inside its covers. This months issue focuses on WWII North Africa starting with a 10 page analysis of the battle for Tobruk. There are is also a show report from the Battlegroup South event at Bovington in July that is making me kick myself for not getting there. All the articles are lavishly illustrated with colour photos and detailed maps that make this a pleasure to read. I know some people considered the acquisition of WI by Battlefront to be a disaster but IMHO the magazine has gone from strength to strength.
