Four Booklets Available for FREE
I am a former game designer (SPI, OSG, etc.) and military historian, better known for my work in the eighteenth century, the Napoleonic period, and the American Civil War (The Anatomy of Victory: Battle Tactics 1689-1763, With Musket, Canon, and Sword: Battle Tactics of Napoleon and this Enemies, and The Blood Crucible of Courage: Fighting Methods and Combat Experience of the Civil War.)
However, for the last 7 years I have turned my attention to warfare on the European battlefield during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. I have completed a work entitled English Infantry & Cavalry Tactics: 1672-1698, which despite its narrowly focused title, analyzes the development of battlefield tactics throughout that century, and will also supply a cornucopia of information for those interested in, for example the French army of this period.
I have also authored another short pamphlet which I am making available for FREE: French Methods of Delivering Fire: 1688-1714. This examines in detail the various methods of delivering fire that the French had experimented with and those that were officially sanctioned during the War of Grand Alliance and the War of Spanish Succession. This can be obtained by absolutely no charge by going to the Venture Games
online bookstore. There are 3 other FREE booklets available there (NO CHARGE).
