ADLG Theme Boundaries

When I wrote my Art de la Guerre (ADLG) list search tools I contacted various people to ask their advice.  I received lots of helpful comments and some requests for specific search methods.

However, one person asked why I was doing this as the armies in ADLG v4 are already split into rigorous periods.  As ADLG author HervĂ© Caille explained:

I have since uncovered a slight problem with this.  Not with the lists themselves but the way they are used as broad themes in competitions.
