1-210346 Grant, Charles REFIGHTING HISTORY: Volume 6 - The Seven Years War: Moys, Mehr, Eilenburg, Baiersdorf and Closter Camp Covers the mid 18th century and the Seven Years War with five battles in a four-part format: background, detailed history with orders of battle, consideration on how to wargame the battle, and finally the wargame itself.

The five battles covered range from the relatively large battle at Moys to a small skirmish near Baiersdorf. Actions at Mehr and Eilenburg provided interesting challenges for both players. The Battle of Closter Camp presents the opportunity for considerable confusion with the early part of the action taking place in the dark.

The chapter on Command and Staff looks at the various staff structures in the major armies before looking at the wargame implications. There have been a number of significant changes in The Wargame Rules since they were published in 2012 and these changes are summarized in a short chapter. Finally, this includes an index to all previous battles covered in the series.1 vol, 176 pgs 2018 UK, PARTIZAN PRESS

1-218030 Kling, Stephen Battle of Quebec 1759: Wargame Wargame covers the Battle of Quebec 1759. Includes 48 counters, 11x17-inch map, and 16-20 cards in ziplock bag. There are several variants included with the game including all of the French troops that could have participated in the battle which can potentially enter the game by card play.

Bougainville's men did arrive but a few hours too late which is why the British had some men back behind the main line. The cards are set up so that the longer the game goes on, the higher the probability that these and the other reinforcements plus the Quebec garrison enter the game. The British can get a few reinforcements too if Bougainville arrives and a certain British card is drawn.1 vol, 1 pgs 2018 US, THE HISTORICAL GAME COMPANY
