  2. Listener Jamie asked a question for Henry “As a man on the inside of the historical gaming world, but the outside if the main businesses. Why does it seem that only WWII gets decent starter sets?”

I’m stunned and terribly saddened to hear of the passing of longtime listener Andrew. He helped to give the show the name Wargaming Recon. Andrew was a kind soul who selflessly gave of himself to help those around him. Despite being legally blind he taught children how to wargame.

Wargaming Recon has lost a good friend in his passing. I ask all listeners to join me in a moment of silence in Andrew’s honor.
