Welcome to Cold War Gamer, a blog I am using to record my Cold War wargaming projects. These range from fictitious Cold War hot projects to historical conflicts that took place around the globe throughout the Cold War era, all modelled and gamed in 20mm. The blog includes links to various resources useful to the Cold War Gamer.

My current projects include: Central Front; British & Soviet. South African Border War; Angolans and South Africans. Soviet Afghan War; Soviets and Afghans

Review - Web Resources CIA FOIA site

Central Intelligence Agency, Freedom of Information Act Web Site

I came across this gem of a site recently it contains a significant number of declassified Top Secret reports that cover the whole of our period of interest. Some of these are quite significantly redacted but all are largely useable where they are on topic.  So far I have explored the fairly obvious search terms of Soviet, Motor Rifle Division and Tank Division and have returned a number of Interesting documents that throw considerable light on the geographic and temporal distribution of Soviet equipment and organisational change.  In addition the reports within the archive cover such topics as command and control, operational use and some concept of what the oppositions plan might have been.

Useful articles recovered to date include:
