Follow the Leader. 20 Questions

Okay, I know a bunch of people are doing this because of The Angry Lurker and why would I be any different and not do it too.  So here are my 20 Questions answered.

1. Favorite Wargaming Period and why?
This is tough because I have several that I really enjoy that I could list but in the spirit of the question I will pick The American Revolution.  I find watching the growth of the rebels into an army from a group of disorganized rabble a fascinating journey.  Each year the battles provide so much color, excellence and heartache that I can't turn away.

Playing in a 1960s era scenario with the British vs Iraq.

20. The miserable Git question, what upsets you?
Dishonesty, liars and general trouble makers.
