Little Wars is the grand-daddy of wargaming books. Written in 1913 by H.G. Wells, with whimsical illustrations by J.R. Sinclair and period photographs of the game in action, it has been out of print for nearly 100 years. A reprint was published in the 1970s, but that, too, is long out of print. It's back, however, in this fine little reprint.
People have always played with their toy soldiers, but Wells believed there was more to the hobby than simply setting up battles or shooting things over. He gave us rules for movement, combat, artillery fire and the like, all wrapped in a charming overview that made the reading of the rules almost as much fun as the playing of the game.
This book belongs on every collector's bookshelf. It epitomizes the best elements of our hobby: a respect for history, a sense of humor about the peculiarity of playing with 'little men,' and, above all, a real feel for the great tactile pleasure of moving guys around on the floor.
