memoir-44-clubAs I mentioned the other day, my girls (9 and 12 years old) are big fans of Memoir ’44. When we play, I try to incorporate a bit of World War II history, and it’s definitely prompted the younger one to read both fiction and non-fiction books on the period. At Oregon’s Jewell Elementary School though, teacher Jesse Rasmussen has taken it a step further with the establishment of the Memoir 44 History Club. According to an article in Wednesday’s The Bulletin, he has around a dozen students each week excited to learn about the next battle, discuss its weapons and geography, and debate the necessity of war.
