As one of Sailor Malan's Tigers, a Spitfire dominated Bob Spurdle's WWII flying career with 74 Squadron. Impatient to fly and a rebel against blind officialdom, he wangled one operational posting after another, and was still in action in August 1945. In the meantime he had destroyed eight enemy aircraft, probably four more, and damaged at least 15 others. After leaving 74 Squadron he flew with both 91 Squadron and the Merchant Ship Fighter Unit before visiting his native New Zealand to fly against the Japanese. Returning to the UK in 1944 as a flight commander in 80 Squadron, he became their Commanding Officer in July of that year. Latterly he was attached to the 6th Airborne Division for Army Co-operation flying by glider into Germany and then reaching the Elbe by 11th Armoured Division tank. A natural writer, Bob Spurdle vividly expresses the exhilarations and fears of the fighter pilot in action, what it feels like to be jumped by a gaggle of Me109s, coping with the continual pressures of losing friends and of constantly flying in action as part of an elite force on whom the survival of Britain and her allies depended.

This Note describes a new approach to combat modeling and an application of this approach to modeling selected theaters of operation in a global model--the RAND Strategy Assessment System. There are five important features of this new approach: (1) Using the model parallels the processes involved in developing a concept of operations or a game plan; (2) the model is rule based rather than algorithm based for both decision and assessment processes; (3) the model focuses on first defining a specific situation, and then selecting the most appropriate assessment process; (4) heavy emphasis is placed on the qualitative factors that determine the success or failure of operations, as well as the usual quantitative factors; and (5) the approach relies on the flexibility, clarity, structure, and speed of the RAND-ABEL programming language. Keywords: Land combat; Models; Theater level operations; Battles.

THE University of Toronto Athletic Association was formed in the spring of 1893. In 1943, the completion of its fiftieth year was marked by an anniversary dinner. In reviewing the past fifty years one cannot fail to be impressed by the confidence reposed in the Association by the University Trustees and the Board of Governors.
