Nafziger Orders of Battle


George Nafziger was a man with a passion, and every wargamer alive today owes a debt to him. His scrupulous collection of Orders of Battle is a resource that has inspired countless tabletop battles. When I was coming of age, these documents were the holy grail of military history nerds. Now, thanks to his posthumous generosity, they are now available free online through the archives at Ft. Leavenworth. While some nitpickers may pick nits with a few of his details, I can think of no better way to waste a few hours than by poring over lists relating to campaigns both celebrated and obscure.

See the collection here.

Thank the Nafziger.
