Sandhurst Wargames

Whenever we are on holiday we take every opportunity to get some book shopping done. Now and again a real bargain comes along and often in unexpected places. Today in Whitby I popped into a charity shop to retrieve my wife (she loves looking for cookbooks in these shops) and found one such bargain staring at me across the store.

A Book of Sandhurst Wargames by the late Paddy Griffith was a completely unexpected find and a real bargain. The book starts with a history of wargaming that most gamers would find fascinating to read.

The rest of the book contains four sets of rules covering four periods of history. Each game is detailed with history and background and lots of useful illustrations. Unfortunately this copy is missing the game boards and tokens for play but its still and interesting read none-the-less.


  1. Looks nice, I love your blog!
    Keep up the good work!

  2. Sweet and serendiptious find! Love those old books. Takes me back to when I was a boy getting Featherstone's books from the public library.

  3. That does sound really cool actually.

  4. BTW that spambot has a nice rack ... just sayin.

  5. A great find Lee, I always look in charity shops for books, I've found a few gems myself in my time.

  6. Great find. I love the old wargames books. As James said, Takes me back....
