About The Author
-

Peter has made his living as a freelance illustrator for 40 years, mostly working on historical subjects, notably in recent years for Osprey in the UK, and for various wargame figure manufacturers in the form of box art. He designed and illustrated Paddy Griffith's 'Battle in the Civil War' which was a new approach to explaining the job of the American Civil War General and was commissioned to do several series of drawings for the new Gettysburg visitor centre. Peter has played with toy soldiers in one way or another for most of his life, and his work and hobby come together in this paper soldier revival project with Helion books. He lives in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, in the UK.

Andy Callan has written many articles in wargames magazines and is renowned for his innovative approach to wargaming.

REVIEWS
-

“A superb castle model is the centrepiece for this entertaining and educational book about medieval castle warfare.”

- Books Monthly

“The book is very detailed...All sections are interchangeable and can be used to stage a number of historical battle scenarios. I'm not quite sure which battles Robin Hood fought in, but he can be used as a skirmisher or irregular troop.”
