|Donald Featherstone interview on YouTube|
I guess most wargamers of a certain age will have at least one Featherstone book in their collection and I am no exception. My favourites include the Tank Battles in Miniature series and his book on Solo Wargaming, although there are probably loads more that I have never read (something I must rectify asap!).
One of the things that comes across clearly in his Tank Battles series is his insight and knowledge of real life tank warfare (gained in the field serving with the Royal Armoured Corps in WWII) and how it can be represented on the games table. My personal favourite A wargamers guide to the Western desert Campaign 1940-42 (reviewed here) is not only a great book of wargaming rules and ideas but also a deeply interesting and engaging history book.
