It's the only explanation I can come up with after he carried me and B_C through this episode.

Hearing about you guys and your attempts to learn Squad Leader in your younger years reminded me of a horrifying piece of my own gaming history.

A buddy and I had been playing stuff like Axis & Allies and Hunt For Red October and Red Storm Rising. We were both WW2 history buffs. So we figured we were ready for the big leagues. Pacific War by Victory Games was our big leagues. We weren't ready. Frankly, I will never be ready for a game at that scale. It was awful.

Wow!  That took me back...I have read a bunch of those Harrington books and really enjoyed the first 4-5 books or so.   I keep hearing rumors of a movie deal but so far nothing tangible seems to have happened. 

I must admit though that I have kinda given up on the series.
