The Madasahatta Campaign

Eric Knowles was one of the pioneers of British wargaming, and his recent death marks the passing of one more member of that small group that made British wargaming what it is today. This book is dedicated to his memory, and particularly the Madasahatta Campaign, the long-running First World War Colonial wargame campaign that he ran.

This book contains chapters entitled:

Introduction

The History, Topography, Climate and Conditions of Madasahatta
Geography and Communications of New Surrey
Geography and Communications of Hansaland
Geography and Communications of the Arab Concession
The tactical situation on Madasahatta at the opening of the campaign in 1914

Original Map Sections
New Colour Map Sections
The memories of those who were there
Appendix 1: The South East Asian Naval Campaign
Appendix 2: The Quest of Thane Tostig

Please note that Eric's original text was written nearly 50 years ago and reflects the nature and attitudes of society at that time. As a result, it may contain outdated cultural depictions or references.
