Are you fit for duty? Find out how much you know about wargaming with our quiz.
The crunch of the debris under a tank tread, the distant booming of heavy fire in the distance, the sharp snap of rifle fire – all sounds we’ve heard coming from our PC or console; but the low hum of the submarine’s engine and the dead silence as they’re cut off by a hushed order, the frenzied movement of a command center during battle, the requests for support shouted over a popping radio – those are the sounds a commander hears. What isn’t heard is the pressure he undergoes as he takes responsibility for the men he sends to battle.
The modern concept of wargames have been used to train commanders to have confidence in their decisions since the early 1800s. How much do you know about the games that have been used for both military training and civilian entertainment?
As always, you’ll have as long as you like to take the quiz, and can retake it until you get that 100%, but your cumulative time will affect your position on the leaderboard.
