'Donald Featherstone was one of the dozen or so people who, in the 20th century, turned wargaming into both a hobby and a more useful tool for military professionals.' James F. Dunnigan 'My War - Sergeant Featherstone 7893763'
'Don's Book 'War Games' in 1962 was an amazing thunderclap to an entire generation of would-be wargamers.' Paddy Griffith
Through forty books on wargaming and military history, literally thousands of magazine articles and countless talks, Don's energetic efforts made wargaming widely available, even respectable. However, despite this proliferation of writing, some areas remained hidden. 'Lost Tales' covers some of these omissions.
This book covers diverse material from a lifetime's experience of wargaming with 15 chapters plus 1 appendix including:
'Modern Wargaming - How it all Began in the 1960's.'
No less than twelve sets of Don's favorite rules from ancients to World War II, including two unpublished sets.
