70 years ago...wow, hard for me to believe, but that's a long time past now.

May the memories of those who sacrificed so much for future generations in that battle, never be forgotten.

I am in total agreement. I will be playing a BOTB scenario today, didn't get around to it on the anniversary.

Got the book, read the "Tactics" half and I will be finishing the "Strategy" half soon. Well written book...a must have for serious M44 players. I've been able to immediately apply some of the principles already in the 4 games since I started reading it racking up medals I would have lost before knowing some of the ideas written in the book.

In 3 of the games, which I won, those principles helped me methodically and efficiently gain medals for wins. I feel like the game is opened up to me now which is a really cool feeling. It reminds me when I finally got some chess lessons and "really" started playing much better chess.


Agreed 100%.

This book reinforces the notion that Memoir 44' is a game of skill based on resource management, as opposed to a game of chance based on luck.

Indeed, that's the story, and the opportunity to pay a tribute to two champions who changed my visions of games.

Dai Junfu, Go champion, 8-dan
Marc-Antoine Nguyen, Xiang Qi (Chinese Chess) master.

In April 2009, we were finishing together their books. Both are dealing with evaluation, strategy and decision making in the mid-games. Surprisingly, they sent the same day to their publisher (me) two strong principles that were not compatible with each other. I called them immediately. Eurekâ! Both were true, and we could break the paradox. To explain it, I needed an archetype. Which game could take the biggest benefit from these champions and their smart approach? That would be Memoir 44, and thus came the foundations of the Strategy Guide (mostly chapter 15, risk exposure). In the meantime, chapter 12 and 3-dimension positional evaluation is the way chess masters (and good friends) address the decision-making process in mid-games.

Received mine a few days ago and I must say that it is beyond worth the price of admission! So much useful information here and I've only touched upon the first few chapters. I love how the book is laid out and information is straight and to the point. Thank you, Richard Borg and your fantastic crew of contributors for making this volume possible!!
