Recently, Richard Clarke of Too Fat Lardies made an annoucement on his blog about a new project he was launching to promote wargaming in schools.
Over recent years, wargaming has become quite specialised and splintered, and the general wargaming books that were available in the 1970s by authors such as Donald Featherstone are now few and far between.
Henry’s book is a fantastic introduction into the wargaming hobby, and is an ideal starting point for anyone coming to wargaming for the first time.
Richard is proposing to try and get these books into schools, to help promote wargaming clubs.
As a fresh-faced teenager, my school wargaming club was one of the first introductions that I had to the hobby, so I’m very happy to lend my support to this project to help a new generation of school children discover a hobby that has given me a tremendous amount of pleasure over the past 30 years or so.
Take a look at Richard’s blog post for full details – everything you need to do should you wish to help with this project is detailed there.
