Aren't those rule sets rather than books about wargaming ?

Aren't these rulesets, at least substantially so, too…?

I have many favorite wargame books, and well remember buying and reading (and re-reading and re-re-reading) several of them. If you had to say that one (or, say, up to five) had the biggest influence on you, which would it be?

I guess I'd go for Wargame Campaigns (Featherstone), Ancient Wargaming (Barker) and ACW Wargaming (Wise), Wargaming the AWI Handbook (Featherstone) and Operation Warboard (Lyall).

How about you? I realise a lot of people would want to go for:
Didn't have an influencing wargame book ('cos I'm talking about the golden period of 1960-75ish when one or more books came out a year.

(A real book, not a boxed game set, rules pamphlet, catalog, magazine, etc. Nominations taken from this pre-poll discussion.)
