"Woe to the vanquished" is a translation of Vae Victis.

Vae Victis is also a superior wargame magazine, published in French, with some English translations available. The articles in this bimonthly are illustrated with blazing color with isometric maps. Counters are printed on light cardboard, in color, and must be cut and/or assembled.

These are the Anciens numéros, or back issues.
