Master of the OOB!

Check out his online store and the Nafziger OOB Colection online.

If you've ever researched a battle that had gunpowder in it, you know who he is.

If not, he is one of the most prolific and popular authors on military history in the world today. Author and translator of over 200 different titles on military history ranging from the Middle Ages through the Korean War, with a heavy emphasis on the Wars of the French Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars and WWII.

George has also been a US Navy Captain, director of the Napoleonic Society of America and the Napoleonic Alliance, and he was even an HMGS-East board member, but we won't hold that against him.

WW2 Italian campaign: platoon level action Italian style. US forces clash with the Germans amidst the foothills and yes vineyards to determine who will control a vital road junction and supply point.

GURPS: they call it Ambrosia

Three linked games, play in one or all.

First...You'll be fighting beside the youngest and brightest General the budding republic of Rome has ever had, You're a part of the most elite of the armies of Rome. Your group amounts to two hundred of the absolute best of the best anywhere in the world. All of you were hand picked to be Anthony Triarius's special army. You've been fighting as an army for the last year, since Anthony's commanding officer was killed by a lucky arrow and Anthony had no choice but to take charge. He not only took charge but brilliantly destroyed the larger force of four thousand men with only your two hundred.

After pacifying the area, he was recalled to Rome to be raised to the rank of General at twenty-four. While in Rome he noticed a beautiful young woman then asked her to marry him. When she said yes, they had a quick marriage then all of you were off to his villa in a valley in the mountains. As you arrived at his villa outriders spotted a force of around two-thousand barbarians approaching and would be at the villa within three days. Later it was determined they were the best the barbarians could muster to punish Anthony and anyone standing at his side. The Villa's not the most ideal location for a battle but leaving it undefended is out of the question.

Second...It's 2500 years later and the year is 2002. You're graduating from Boston university when the day of your finals the girl of your group gets a letter from an Italian lawyer telling her she's inherited 30,000,000 Euro's and 200 acres of land. The catch is she has to go to Italy to take possession. There are tickets for her and each of you in the envelope. It seems they want to keep your little group together for some reason.

And finally...It's now 2021 and Italy is now the only zero world power thanks to Cassandra who owns Triar Inc. Your once again facing certain death but this time it's a mysterious group called the Masters. However, the Gods and their Dirae are now willing to fight for humanity and Earth. If you lose every living thing on Earth will be destroyed, but they have a million ships and you have just over 60,000 counting fighters. Many other aliens are standing with Earth, some because they want to kill humans, others because they know what the masters are like and would rather fight in humanities backyard rather than theirs.

Presented by Ed Parachini. Author of Legacy of the Father & Payback's Hell
