Diplomacy A-Z Version 6.0

Table of Contents

I'm very interested in comments, additions and updates to this document. It was originally written in 1992-93 by myself and Mark Nelson (Mark doing most of the writing, and me doing most of the editing). It has since been dormant, with the exception of a few updates here and there. Please mail me (Harold Reynolds) with anything you wish to contribute!

Version 6.0 converted to HTML on November 3, 2002.

See the A-Z as a PDF File [UPDATED: December 27, 2007]!
