War Stories and Photos

Photos and articles of battles I've attended. A couple are links to other web pages that agreed to post my work before I began writing my own HTML.

The most recent battles are at the top of the list.

2008 NE Spring Regionals
The Allied Fleet was resurgent with two new Class 6 ships plying the waters of Greenbrier State Park during the NE Spring Regionals May 9-11,2008. The weekend also saw the debut of the new Axis flagship, the not quite ready for prime time SMS Ostfriesland.

The Axis fleet crushed the Allies once again during the 2007 Nationals at Camp Conron July 22-27, 2007. But not every Axis ship made it home . . .
