Just finished reading ' A game of birds and wolves'. Not tank related, but a very entertaining read, and one that highlights some historical relevance and value of 'war-gaming'.


Looks like my city library has it electronically both on Kindle and audio.  Also looks like a fun read.  Thanks!

Try "Brothers in Arms" by James Holland




Excellent read following the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry from their landings on D-Day (6th June '44) through to the end of WW2


Equally - "Tank Action" by David Render




David Render was a Troop leader in the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry, who joined the Regiment on D+5 and fought with the Regt through to Armistice.  This a great account of life as a young troop leader in WW2.


I too have recently re-read Red Storm Rising, First Clash, Team Yankee and The Defense of Hill 781.  All good reads.

Currently reading this one. Lot of armor actions and the phraseology and communications procedures are correct.

May, 1989. The two nuclear superpowers are finally talking peace, but not everyone in the Soviet Union seeks such resolution. Senior Soviet ministers and generals conduct a coup to seize power and prevent the dissolution of the USSR and the Warsaw Pact. To cover up their plot and capitalize on the resulting chaos, they invade West Germany, setting off a chain of events and the Third World War. Across Europe, soldiers and spies are drawn into the conflict. From NATO headquarters to the front lines, the information is there to prevent nuclear annihilation if only they can find it in time. Based on the declassified operations order 33001,

Leo Barron's decades of military intelligence experience allow this military thriller to dive deep into tactics and realistically explore how everything could have changed in 1989.

If you liked The Defense of Hill 781, you may also like this other one



Surprised "Combat Team" -same style, same author- hasn't been mentioned. Interactive fiction but you're a company commander in an M-1A2, etc. company. 


...and his full on novel Proud Legions, a hard-to-put-down novel based on Combat Team.
