C.S. Lewis's lost Aeneid : arms and the exile ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) is best remembered as a literary critic, essayist, theologian, and novelist, and his famed tales The Chronicles of Narnia and The Screwtape Letters have been read by millions. Now, A.T. Reyes reveals a different side of this diverse man of letters: translator. Reyes introduces the surviving fragments of Lewis's translation of Virgil's epic poem, which were rescued from a bonfire. They are presented in parallel with the Latin text, and are accompanied by synopses of missing sections, and an informative glossary, making them accessible to the general reader. Writes Lewis in A Preface to Paradise Lost, "Virgil uses something more subtle than mere length of time ... It is this which gives the reader of the Aeneid the sense of having lived through so much. No man who has read it with full perception remains an adolescent." Lewis's admiration for the Aeneid, written in the 1st century BC and unfolding the adventures of Aeneas, a Trojan who traveled to Italy and became the ancestor of the Romans, is evident in his remarkably lyrical translation. C.S. Lewis's Lost Aeneid is part detective story, as Reyes recounts the dramatic rescue of the fragments and his efforts to collect and organize them, and part illuminating look at a lesser-known and intriguing aspect of Lewis's work. -- Jacket

Investigating the fundamentals of the third generation wargame by David O Ross ( )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This effort investigated methods to provide superior decision support primarily for dynamic planning and execution in support of both Crisis Action Plans and Deliberate Planning. This was accomplished by evaluating current Air Force wargaming methods and looking at ways to improve them. Issues with current wargaming methods were identified while methods for improving them were developed, leading to improved methods for future wargames and combat mission planning

The wargame is designed in a modular and fractal manner with three nets (C3ISR, system and environment), with each entity represented on each net. The term "Third Generation Wargame" is clarified. Several contracts supporting this effort have been completed, others contracts are in progress, and still others are in planning or pending award. An internal project is also in progress

Developing Intelligently Interactive Computerized Wargames ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The commercial computer game industry has recently made giant technological leaps. These advances have not been used to their full potential. Many of today's computer games have better graphics, sound and interfaces than the most advanced military simulations, and are much less expensive. However, most games in the commercial sector fall short when it comes to artificial intelligence (AI). People are beginning to demand improved AI, and for good reason. Once you have determined the behavior of the computer forces, the game ceases to be challenging. It would be beneficial to the military to harness the power of commercial games outstanding graphics and intuitive interfaces, and integrate an advanced AI into such a game. This project focuses on the genre of games known as strategy games or war games. They are command and control (C2) oriented games where the user commands a group of forces, competing against enemy forces. We evaluated fifteen commercial games of this genre to attempt to determine the feasibility of incorporating an advanced AI into one or more of them. We propose that government experts in AI and/or C2 work with commercial game developers to create compelling, advanced simulations for use in military Planning and training
