As already announced a few days ago, the dramatic events of the last few weeks are coming to an end. Talks for a ceasefire are now taking place in Belgrade, with both sides throwing in the last reserves to gain a tactical advantage on the negotiating table.
Whatever the result of these bitter diplomatic talks, Europe and the World will never be the same. For the third time during this century, European cities are in ruins and tens of thousands lives have been sacrificed on the altar of ideological conflict.
As a privileged witness of these historical events, I think my last duty is to report the key passages of World War Three and thank all the people who helped us during these extraordinary and dramatic circumstances.

Well, it has been quite a ride. Not even in my wildest dreams I would have expected such a huge success for our beloved creature.
As I’ve already stated a couple of times, there will be no more “1985: Under an Iron Sky” reprints during my lifetime. Only We Happy Few, We Band of Brothers, will savor the exclusive chance of having half of our living space impracticable for three months while playing a full-scale “Forward, Comrades!” campaign.
Thank you everybody, for real.
