[en] This book is structured around one ambition: to restore wargaming to its true meaning and turn it into a method of strategic analysis.
This is a departure from the widely held view of a discipline invented in the 19th century by the Prussians, to rediscover a protean object with a rich two thousand year history. A distinction emerges between the discipline of wargaming and the many possible applications of wargames. Thus, wargaming offers the possibility of achieving, more easily than with other analytical tools, many of the goals of strategic study - testing theoretical concepts, training in decision making or matching theoretical capabilities to planned threats.
In order for the reader to grasp this innovative methodology beyond theoretical conjecture, the book is enriched with a presentation of the tools needed to create wargames as well as two complete games created and produced by the author.
