Borduria - air defence
A last game to mark the end of the summer season - with some new 'Inter War' air campaign rules being tested out.
The aim - for the Syldavian Martin Bomber to cross the canal and breach the defences...but the prophesy of Mr Baldwin that 'the bomber will always get through' did not prove to be true. The Bordurian air defence being more than a match for the hand wringing, liberal Syldavian cronies of the western powers.
It all proved to be fun, but very difficult indeed...or to quote Mr Wells;
Once the command of the air is obtained by one of the contended armies, the war must become a conflict between a seeing host and one that is blind.
