Welcome to Platoon Forward!

Welcome to the site where the story of the battle is as important as the battle itself. Here we will focus on men thrust into extraordinary situations of life and death. They must lead other men with duty and honor to meet their countries objectives. Some will be blessed with great skill, some will carry great shortcomings. No matter what nation, no matter what war, no matter what theater, they are all called to move their Platoon or Squadron forward!

These are their individual stories as played out using my various campaign rules . Hopefully these stories will entertain and inspire you to use your own troops, airmen and sailors to accomplish your own great heroics.

Welcome to Platoon Forward. This is a place for After Action Reports using my solitaire campaign rules. It will focus on the men and hopefully entertain and inspire you to your own feats of derring do! I will follow each platoon as it is played out. I will include characters, forces and, if my computer skills allow, photos and maps. This will allow you to take any action and use it as a scenario. I use a variant of Too Fat Lardies "Troops, Weapons and Tactics" but any skirmish, squad or platoon based game should work.
Comments and suggestions are always welcome. Thank you for visiting.

  3. Hi Joe,
    I like your AARs. Do you have your system organized so others can use it? I use NUTS 2.0. and have a campaign going. Would be interested to see if your stuff would help move my story forward.
