Launched in January of 1967 by Christopher Wagner, Strategy & Tactics magazine was very much in the format of The General from Avalon Hill at the time. It was clearly a fanzine in nature in the first half year, but the response indicated there was an interest in wargames beyond AH's limited offerings.

Below are the links to these newsletters, as they were later re-issued in a bound book format by SPI. Each book starts and ends with a then-current look back on the early days of S&T to fill in the history.

These are only links. I do not have these magazines on my website, and do not control the website that has decided to store them. If the links do not work, let me know, but I cannot fix any problems if they should be moved or dropped.
