In reviewing the various wargaming activities, stated policies of the United States and the Soviet Union are examined space asset wargaming is approached from the viewpoint of supporting national policy. Since wargaming develops leadership skills and provides a degree of education to leaders, emphasis is placed on the ability of wargames to convey a sense of national priority.
