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 struggled for Liberty across the states of the colonial new world. Here Washington's army can clash again with the redcoats of the King, 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 brave Minute men and ruthless Hessian mercenaries. 

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.
