New Before/After: The Bear Marches West

This was a one-shot (one going-over rather than a back-and-forth) for Russell Phillips, a longtime client who specializes in ebooks primarily aimed at military gamers. I love working with Russ, we've got a pretty good rapport going.

Here we worked on an alternate history scenario called The Bear Marches West. You'll note the alternate spelling of colour; the gentleman is British.

Before:
The Bear Marches West contains 12 scenarios set during a fictional Warsaw Pact invasion of West Germany during the 1980s. All the scenarios are based on battles depicted in well-known novels, and are designed to be used with whatever rules the players are most comfortable with. Each scenario includes the battle's context, weather conditions, deployments, force lists and a colour map. The scenarios range in scale from small skirmishes, with a company on each side, to large engagements, with Soviet regiments bearing down on smaller but better-equipped NATO units.

After:
NATO kept the Warsaw Pact behind the Berlin Wall until its dissolution--but what if it hadn't?

    Agreed, and I've always been pleased with the result.

    I just want to mention that Mei noted the British spelling of colour, and suggested that I might want to use the American spelling. It was my decision to stick to the British spelling, partly because my books are all in British English.
