Refighting History 5: Marlborough's Big Four – Blenheim, Ramilles, Oudenarde & Malplaquet

Refighting History

By Charles S Grant

The battles, Blenheim, Ramillies, Oudenarde and Malplaquet, are known collectively as Marlbourgh's Big Four. In this book, after a brief introduction to the War of the Spanish Succession, each battle is covered in four sections:

  • The Background – Providing the context for the battle.
  • The Battle – Provides an account of the historical battle. In this section, I provide a detailed order of battle, maps and an account of the battle with eyewitness accounts where possible.
  • Wargaming the Battle – This sets out some of the considerations and thought processes that have gone into delivering the battle to the wargame table.
  • The Wargame – an account of the game.

Marlborough's Big Four brings to the wargame table four of the battles of one of Britain's greatest military commanders.

Out now at just £35.00 GBP.

Battlegroup Torch: A Battlegroup Kursk Supplement

This book covers the desert fighting from May 1942 to May 1943, and the Axis' ultimate surrender in Tunisia.

  • Army Lists Nine – Army lists designed to be played with the character of the principal combatants for North Africa – the veteran Deutsche Afrika korps for 1942, and Defenders of Tunisia for 1943, Italian armored and infantry divisions to face British (and Commonwealth) armored and infantry divisions. Also, for Tunisia, the first combat operations for the U.S. 1st Armored Division and U.S. infantry divisions, as well as ex-Vichy French March divisions, now turned against their former Axis allies.
  • Special Rules – New special rules to adapt the core Battlegroup rules to the later North African battlefields. Recreating the character of desert fighting, with its dusty conditions, reliance on tank warfare and mobile formations, and the wearing effects of the harsh conditions. Also, rules for the colder, muddy, difficult hill-country of northern Tunisia, a very different type of battlefield, all helping to create games with the distinctive feel for the end of the desert war.
