I’ve just been reading an interesting article on the BBC news website about the up coming NATO summit to be held in Warsaw (ironic as the city once lent its name to NATOs enemy the Warsaw Pact). The article discusses NATOs reaction to the latest perceived threats from Russia.
With increasing NATO deployment across Europe, especially in Poland and the Baltic states some would say that we are edging ever closer to a new “cold war”.
From a wargamers perspective the situation in eastern Europe provides a number of ideas for game scenarios in which possible future conflicts could be gamed. It prompted me to start working on some modern scenario or campaign ideas involving a conflict between Russia and NATO somewhere in the Baltic states using my 6mm cold war miniatures and rules.
