While you were away
Or, more accurately, while I was away, I failed to blog on the following news stories:
- BBC story on H.G. Wells and the beginning of modern war gaming here.
- Looks like a renewed contest over Gibraltar is a-brewing – BBC story here. Hopefully the Spanish learned a thing or two from their 1704-1705 siege/blockade. I’m not sure the English of 1704 would’ve guessed that the “Rock” would be one of their most lasting imperial outposts.
