It has been said that war gaming as a means of examining defense issues is being used more today than at any time since the period between World Wars I and II. Whether this broad statement is true is difficult to determine, however, it is clear that in the 1980s we experienced a resurgence in the use of the war-gaming technique. Certainly, we game more and better now than we did in the 1960s and 1970s.
