Abstract
This author attended the War Gaming and Combat Modelling Course from 15 to 19 May 2000. The course is offered by the Applied Math and Operational Research Group at the Royal Military College of Science in Shrivenham, UK. The course syllabus included the deterministic Lanchester Square and Linear Laws, a stochastic Lanchester approach to simulation, measures of effectiveness, exercises for the students, a presentation of several combat models in use or under development today in the UK. This course was an excellent introduction to the fields of war gaming and combat modelling. It is recommended that all junior defence scientists be encouraged to attend this course.
