Could be a nice title to go with Wellington and the British Army's Indian Campaigns 1798-1805 by Martin R. Howard and Wellington in India by Jac Weller, both books on my to buy list, eventually.

He writes a lot but I have never enjoyed his writing style. I have several of his scenario books and find him torture to read.

Who – Weller, Howard, or Grant?

To the best of my knowledge, neither Martin Howard nor Jac Weller wrote scenario books, so MiniPigs is clearly referring to Charles S. Grant.

I have several of his 18th century ImagiNation scenario books and have not found them unpleasant to read.

Yes, Charles S. Grant. It might just be me. I have a lot of his books but can never get through them. He writes in very important wargaming areas and there should be more people encouraged to do so but for some reason there are authors whose prose I cant enjoy; like Grant's.

Michael Barthop and Bruce Quarrie are others writers who put me to sleep in a few minutes.

But, if I really have trouble sleeping, I crack out the Nafziger.

Thanks, 981- I was aware of the book, and interested in the subject, but didn't make up my mind until I had read your review. Appreciate the pictures and the information.

J, thanks again for the review. I have the book, and am finding it interesting and informative, particularly the details on OOBs and the uniforms and organization of the Company armies.
