While never meeting the guy, I did read a lot of his writings, and while disagreeing with a lot of his POV's on Civil War Musketry, etc; I do respect his research, and his committment on subjects.
RIP sir….

It is with great sadness that I must report the death yesterday of eminent British wargamer, historian and author Dr. Paddy Griffith.

Dr. Paddy Griffith's Forward into Battle

Paddy suffered a heart attack while recuperating at his Manchester home from a recent operation.

I will leave it to others to catalogue Paddy's many works and achievements. To me, he was a founder of Wargame Developments, a provocative author and game designer, and most of all, a generous friend.

He will be greatly missed, not least at the forthcoming Conference of Wargamers where he was to have presented the plenary game.

I'm sure all our thoughts are with his wife, Genevieve, at this difficult time.
