As described in my last post, one of the biggest issues I have had with this campaign is the lack of a single source of information. I have now acquired and read many books on the subject and so I thought I would provide a brief review of these books from a wargaming perspective. Many of the volumes are scholarly works that are essential to the historian, but, provide little information relevant to the wargamer.
I’d be interested in other peoples thoughts and comments on this, especially, if you know of other sources of information that I have not included here. (reviews to follow)
