History and profile[edit]

Armchair General was established in 2003.[2] The first issue appeared in February 2004.[2] It featured tactical situations which can be resolved by sending solutions to the magazine's staff. Modern warfare is also discussed in the form of "dispatches" (news briefs), movie, video game and war game reviews. In May 2015 the magazine stopped print publication.[3]

The Armchair General website features complementary material as well as its own articles, many of which are written by readers of the print magazine and/or members of the site's online forum community.

In June 2005, the Chicago Tribune ranked Armchair General Magazine number 25 in their list of "Best 50 Magazines".[4]
