    I notice on message boards that wars are re-fought often...the Civil War, WW2, the Vietnam War...heck, we even re-fight the wars of other countries.

    What is your favorite war to re-fight and why?

    The Civil War, because it's the only war that reached the homeland.

    I used to play "Steel Panthers" so its WWII for me. I came to admire the tenacity, cleverness, inventiveness and outright total fucking meanness of the Soviets.

    what about the Japs invading and occupying the Aluetians?
    What about the japs shelling CA?
    What about the germans sinking ships at the mouth of the Mississippi and just off other ports?

    I prefer the wars of antiquity - the Roman Civil war, or the Pelloponesian war. The Napoleonic era is somewhat similar in appeal, as the Fench mass tactics resemble those of the Greek Phalanx, replacing the rigid formalism of Fredrikan drill.

    Not a big fan of modern battles - too much artillery or airpower, though some of the infantry clashes around Cassino were interesting.
