Fantasy Wargaming by Bruce Galloway got me hooked on fantasy wargaming, and it was a great read. RPG's came later for me. CHeers, Kev. I think the main inspirations to me were Featherstone's Wargames and Skirmish Wargaming. There were very few books about wargames and also boardgames in Italy, traslated from English or by italian authors. I have two old books from 80's: "Battaglie in miniatura" di Luigi Casali and "Le Campagne di Napoleone" di Bruce Quarrie original title: "Napoleon's campaigns in miniatures.
A wargamers' guide to the Napolionic Wars I found in a old used books store, many years ago. These books made me discovered the beautifull world of wargames. The late Bruce Quarrie was a member of our club back in the seventies. The Airfix Napoleonic rules were adapted from our club rules, originally by Steve Tulk. Quote from: Hertsblue on 10 March , PM.
Quote from: Kassad on 10 March , PM. Hertsblue, please, if you have any contact with Mr Quarrie, give him my respectful compliments. His book totally changed my previous hobby and my life too.
I meet a lots of new dear friends, playing wargames. Quote from: Hertsblue on 11 March , PM. I'm sorry, Kassad, Bruce Quarrie is no longer with us. He passed on in from lung cancer. There's quite a good piece on him in Wikipedia and the Osprey site if you're interested. Quote from: clibinarium on 09 March , AM. This was another one i had on semi-permanent loan from the library and started my AWI itch thats never gone away there are creams available for it nowadays , Here's a pic from it i found on the interweb Lulu have many of these classics available as licensed re-prints.

Donald Featherstone's 'Wargames Through the Ages'. The local library had all four volumes and, as a nipper, I read all of them. I hadn't even heard of the Franco Prussian war until these books. I've still got them all plus some classics picked up much more recently such as The Wargame and Charge. Regards Edward.
