After a couple of years since creating this blog, I’ve finally decided that it wouldn’t be a bad idea to use tags and categories in my posts. What a brilliant mind I am, always in the avantgarde.
Generally, I have lost my interest in military history somewhere near the end of the middle school, but there are still some topics and periods which I like to explore: the German Freikorps, the Spanish Civil War, and most of all, the Italian military exploits from 1922 to 1945. Since video games are my favourite pastime, I enjoy playing an Italian infantryman or pilot, but there is always a problem with finding a game which actually let’s you jump into the boots of a single trooper, instead of being a somewhat boring, impersonal hex strategy.
While searching for Italian-themed games, I noticed that this isn’t only my problem. There are forum threads all over the Internets with people with a similar interest asking for advice, but they rarely get a satisfactory answer – even if they’re posting on Italian forums. So I’ve made a decision to write more about games featuring the Italian WW2 military, and maybe even the Ethiopian campaign or Spanish Civil War. Let’s hope this will be useful for someone.
