My fellow bibliophile friends presented me with several new books on the occasion of my birthday a while back. This is one II certainly didn't habe. It appears that opur halting Napoleonic Imaginations campaign is going to see a lot more seaside action, so it was good timing.
Peaking of that, Joe has decried the Black Seas will be the rules of choice for such ships and engagements, so I picked up a pdf copy myself! I have at least 2 other sets of Napoleonic Age of Sail rules sets to try out, and even a few more ships that I can build. I need to retire so that I can play more! :-)
A bit outside of my core interests, but you have to love the name, right? :-)
Actually, I read quite a bit about Peter back in Middle school, when I was researching the history of the Russian Navy.
This was unexpected. On first read thorough, it reminded me of a development of Neil Thomas' One Hour Wargames... which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Another set to put on the table... some day!
This is a bit of an odd one, although Napoleon was well known to be superstitious. And, of course, there was his usual question about an officer... "Is he Lucky?".
