1. Introduction

Command magazine was published by XTR, from 1989, running until the final Issue 54 in 2001.

Command Magazine was a bi-monthly magazine devoted to Military History, Strategy and Analysis. The magazine's emphasis was on why commanders have made certain decisions combined with an account of a campaign or battle. Heavy emphasis was placed on the use of color maps and orders-of-battle. Command was available by subscription and at bookstores.

Now out of print, many of the games have since been republished in Japan by Kokusai-Tsushin Co., Ltd. (国際通信社) in Command Magazine Japan.
