I posted another nine book reviews on the HMGS website -- all short and to the point with a wargamer's eye for content.

Very useful, thanks. I added one of the books to my wishlist – The Spanish-American War 1898 – something I know nothing about.

I post reviews about once per week, usually about 3 or 4 per posting. As noted above -- they're short and to the point with a wargamer's eye for content.

So far, 59 reviews since middle of April…and more coming.

The latest three:

BOOK REVIEW: Fallschirmjager: German Paratroopers 1937-1941

BOOK REVIEW: The Battle That Stopped Rome: Emperor Augustus, Arminius, and the Slaughter of the Legions in the Teutoburg Forest

BOOK REVIEW: Riflemen: The History of the 5th Battalion 60th (Royal American) Regiment 1797-1818
