"War games are as ancient, varied and complex as war itself. Across centuries and around the world, military planners have developed games to meet challenges and hone tactics. Many of the games we play at home, from chess to online multiplayer battles, have been shaped by contemporary and historic conflicts. War is not a game. Yet war games offer insights into our relationship with real and virtual armed conflict. In this expansive introduction to wargaming, find out how games -- from tabletop battlefields to digital simulations -- have been used to train military personnel. Explore the connections between military conflicts and popular games. And read thought-provoking perspectives from professional gamers, researchers, designers and veterans."-- Provided by publisher.
