There are a couple of particularly interesting essays on the history of the wargaming industry, and the tabltop gaming industry in general, that give some details about our hobby that many will find fascinating. I know I did, even though much of what is in them was familiar to me. I think having those details put into context helped me take a new look at how things have unfolded in a new light. So check out "The Fall of Avalon Hill" from Peter L. de Rosa (written in the late Nineties) and "SPI Died for your Sins" from Greg Costikyan (written in 1996). Both very good reads.
