Charles Wesencraft's With Pike and Musket

I flogged my copy years ago so I can't scan any images but does anyone remember this old hardback wargames tome? Not quite the classic of say 'Charge!' but a milestone book on fighting battles of the 17th century from 1975.

Rather a nice book and it had some good ideas. I think it came out at almost the same time as George Gush's WRG rules and Renaissance armies book.

The WRG system swept the board but I still have a copies of Mr Wesencrafts two books

I'm with John on this one - a nice little book which I reviewed back in 2007 here...

I have a copy and often pull it off the bookshelf for a quick read. Still entertaining and many good ideas.
