192pp., fully illus. throughout with colour photos. 2010, reprinted 2016.
Charles and Phil have produced the ultimate study of wargaming the War of the Austrian Succession with the usual lively scenarios for big or small armies, illustrated (once again full colour throughout) with wargames photographs to make you drool! But simply more than that. Even if you are not a wargamer, but an enthusiast of the period, this book is for you. Charles has produced, in his wonderfully readable style, a detailed history of the campaigns and the battles, with as good a set of orders of battle as you will find. And if any more temptation was needed, the special section for this volume is a study of the Irish Wild Geese and the Scots in French service, with history, uniform details, and 16 superb colour plates by Bob Marrion.
