Hermann Luttman


Mark at Dunkirk

I'm sticking to my guns, getting a single-episode podcast out within a month. No more topics that span multiple months and several episodes, at least not while I'm living in Europe. I very much want to work in MORE topics in my remaining months. As someone once said, quantity has a quality all its own...


Dunkirk is a more limited topic than most or all of my previous episodes. I decided to cover it--despite my desire to get away from WW2--because it was a place I visited recently. On a hot, humid weekend in Paris, my wife & I escaped to the coast. Dunkirk was about as far north as we could get, and it allowed exploration of this other key moment in history. We saw the city, visited the museum, and walked the beach. Later I read a book and some magazines, played a few games, and watched a few movies on the topic.




(Of course I'm very interested in Christopher Nolan's upcoming movie, too, but that won't be seen until next summer.)

Wargame designer Hermann Luttmann covers a wide range. The game he & Paul Fish designed on Dunkirk turned out to be my favorite, and we talk about that in the interview. We talk about a lot of other stuff, too, and it's a fun listen. Hermann happens to be the BGG Wargame Designer of the Month (October 2016), too. Check out his dialogue with fans over on that thread.
