Hit the dirt, Captain!

While rifle fire is deadly, it is surpassed in both lethality and psychological impact by artillery fire.

Once you see the business end of an artillery barrage, you know why it’s called ‘The King of Battle.’

Best keep your head down.

“it could prove to be one of the most memorable and affecting... games [about war] ever.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“The question that Burden of Command wants to answer is, what kind of leader are you, really? ... and in many cases the result is someone very different than the one we had imagined ourselves being.”

“Less wargame and more 'War Game', this is still looking to be a fascinating exploration of an area of warfare not often covered.”
