235

En bref. Les livres traitant des wargames ne sont pas très fréquents, et celui de Matthew B. Caffrey Jr. paru au printemps dernier offre une lecture intéressante pour ceux, anglophiles certes, curieux au sujet de ces jeux, et des différentes perspectives que l’on peut y trouver.

Et en plus l’ouvrage est disponible en téléchargement gratuitement depuis le site de l’US Naval War College.
