I was wondering if you guys working on WitE have looked at or used any information from the books on Operation Barbarossa: the Complete Organisational and Statistical Analysis, and Military Simulation, by Nigel Askey. If you haven't, it might be a good investment.

Excellent. I am looking forward to an improved Soviet OOB.

(And I have found the author, Mr Askey, to be responsive when I have asked for clarification or correction of typos).

Too bad it doesn't cover 1942-1945

From what I understand this project will end with a monster scenario made for TOAW IV, which was only recently released (TOAW IV, not scenario).

That site looks like latent nazi propaganda.

Yes, I have heard tidbits myself on this.

Why would you think that?

The website and the books are written completely neutral, without narratives and very dense on numbers and facts.

The author does express some points of view on the website which I would not necessarily agree with (See WW11 Myths section) but the book, Volume 111A, (700 pages!!!!!) is excellent. There is no commentary or propaganda - it is full of weapons descriptions, production history, TOEs etc etc - a great resource for our game, and I come away with the strong impression that the Soviet OOB in WiTE is incomplete.
