    It seems strange to me that after a lifetime in the hobby, it has taken me nearly 40 years to sign up for Lone Warrior (yep, a Lone Warrior newbie here). I`m in awe with my first ever March copy of the quarterly magazine, and in total rapture at its contents.

    The Channel Islands 1944: A Solo ‘What If?’ Campaign” by Paul Le Long is simply masterly, and is an article I will most definitely be returning to at a later date – once my current project and list of `things to do` is slimmed down a bit… and well, every article was a pure pleasure to read, enthuse over, and enjoy. “Notes From a Contributor” finished off the issue nicely, and left me feeling very happy and privileged to be a part of this wonderful blog, with all its unique diversities.

    Thank you to everyone.


    “Let’s Blow Up a Factory” by Peter R. Barkworth is moved to the top of my “Oooh must do” list of games to inspire me and have a go at myself.
