Looking at the Seven Years War, military historians tend to concentrate on the big battles. However, the day-to-day campaign activity of the combatants included reconnaissance, raids, probing actions, resupply, and a host of other minor operations that frequently lead to small skirmishes.

What I want to do in this volume of Refighting History is to take some of these actions, however small, and however sketchy in terms of accounts, and turn them into wargames. They will also demonstrate that you do not need large armies to wargame the Seven Years War.

The Western Theater accounts provide details of the day-to-day activity by both armies. Coupled with this, the great variety of light and irregular troops provides a whole range of different units.

The result is this volume with nine small historical actions refought on the wargame table. There is also a significant amount of background on the units involved, coupled with artwork to illustrate the uniforms.
