Hello,It's not totally relevant for the military history, so I post this here.Have you read Harry Turtledove serie on an alternate history of WWII where some alien land in the middle of the war to try to conquest us ?I read the first 3 books. It's really funny and might give you a few ideas for some really crazy games. The aliens are not like the usual bug we often see in movies, nor they can change in human being and their is no mind power. In fact, they are a bunch of almost bureaucratic lot who have lived in a society where technology advance is very, very, slow... Anything not thousand years old is still brand new for them ! The only regret I have is that the Maus is not featured in this serie. Would have been cool to see this monster pit against the little aliens...http://www.sfsite.com/~silverag/worldwar.htmlI am planning to read the sequel, when the colonization fleets arrive in the 1960's.He has written many other alternate histories but I haven't read them yet.Light reading for the summer time.
