Got a bargain ... Lone Wolf (Einsamer Wolf for the German speakers) Roleplaying books plus a huge map of Magnamund ...

I used to read the books back in the 80s. While sorting out the old stuff in dad's attic I stumbled over the original books.
Imagine my surprise when I found out that my 12 books in German were 8 books less than the original English series.
Imagine my joy, when I found out that a new publisher had translated the missing 8 books and published the whole series new.
Imagine my grief when I did the math and found out that I had to pay 300€ if I wanted to buy all 20 new books ...

Guess I gotta start saving ... but at least p&p is free ...  lol

The Lost Battalions by Tom Gilling, Australians delivered to Java in 1942 and left basically unsupported by High Command. Less than 100 pages cover the military side, the rest is the POW side of their history. Still a good read but only briefly covers the British Light Tank Squadron and the US artillery unit that became part of their force in its brief campaign. A story of logistical incompetence at its best.

Wargaming English Civil War Cavalry Actions and English Civil War Rules and Scenarios For Wargamers both written by Stephen Maggs and published by Partizan  Press. Of the 2 I think Cavalry Actions is my favourite although Sieges contained some useful information that I was unaware of. Proofreading appears to have been completely absent in Sieges and is a little tighter in Cavalry Actions so much so that I found it distracting, and to the point of irritation in Sieges.

A very fantasy themed pair of new books. Frostgrave Perilous Dark, and a copy of Kings of War Third Edition.

Both look brilliant.

Finally back from our holidays in the lower Loire and some packages were awaiting me when I returned home.  First up was a bunch of books from the Heimdal book sale.

A book I have been meaning to pick up was Stéphane Jacquet’s, Tilly-sur-Seulles 1944, as it relates to my 50th infantry division project. Lots of Fabulous then and now photos and lots of personal accounts and maps. I will be plowing through this to make up some scenarios for my Tyne Tees and using what I can for building references and perhaps a tour.

I rate all of Heimdals ww2 books and Stéphane as a author does a great job with his series. The text is in English and French and is worth the €59 price tag (on sale €50) and is a big tome with lots of great information. Rate 10 out of 10!

During our spring holiday:
Gary McMurty, Lonesome Dove.

Maybe the best Western novel ever to be written.
Some good skirmish ideas, but I won’t fall into that trap and start a new setting! ;D
