Charge!


Charge! has mythical status amongst wargamers, being the rules for playing mostly 18th century wargaming as devised by the legendary Brigadier Peter Young.

This book is anything but dry, being suffused by PY's devilish humour, which makes so much more of a set of rules and clearly demonstrates why what is known as "Old School Wargaming" is becoming the cutting edge of the hobby. With the celebrated example battles The Action At Blasthof Bridge and The Battle of Sittangbad, this reprint will stimulate a new generation of wargamers to the simple fun of this style of wargaming.
