Overview
-

In the 'Battle in America' series, well-known historical illustrator Peter Dennis breathes life back into the 19th century paper soldier, supplying all the artwork needed to create the armies which fought for and against the Union across the United States. Here the blue and the grey regiments can clash again, using simple rules from Veteran wargamer Andy Callan.

Although the figures can be used with any of the commercial sets of wargame rules, an introduction to wargaming and a simple set of rules by veteran wargamer Andy Callan is included, along with buildings, trees and even artillery along with daring rebel cavalry and colorful Zouaves. 

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. Jacobites were the subject of his first experiments with paper soldiers. He is half-Scottish and the subject has always had a special appeal. Castles formed a major theme in his days as a children's book illustrator so in 'Castle assault' he is returning to his illustrative roots  and squeezing as much masonry and siege equipment as he can into the format, alongside Bannockburn and more Scottish heroics. 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.
