Very interesting write up of an obscure battle!
« on: July 30, 2021, 08:50:31 AM »
Hi all,

I just wanted to post a link to the latest write up from Jeff at Obscure Battles. I have long been a reader of Jeff's battle descriptions and find all of them to be excellent quality. His posts have been very well researched, and his maps and OOB are both incredibly useful references for us wargamers.

Best,

That article is a remarkable effort (right down to the very amusig "Parental Guidance" paragraph  :D ). Seems like a great website I should have a closer look at. Thanks for sharing!

Anyone who doesn't know about Jeff's site should immediately go there and bookmark it. It's a brilliant resource. He doesn't do many new posts but, when he does, oh boy, it's always good one.

Berry, is the 'great post' man!

Also, I've found from my dealings with him, he's a pretty good and generous guy all round.
