Blue Steel Books

Hi all,
In 1989, and during the most bitter days of the civil war in Lebanon, a small publication was created, it was made of rough photocopied pages, stapeled together, forming a bi-monthly magazine. It featured anything that i could use focusing on tanks and afvs being used ina ction in Lebanon. I sent the first issue to Military Modelling magazine and i was astounded to see a small review of my creation inside their Reviews sections.. With the review came subscribers, so i added a special colored centerfold and i started beefing up the contents.. In the end 12 issues were published, and i had no less than 77 subscribers to this kid's project..

Oh, I was 16 years old then !!! and the magazine was titled CIVIL WARS
