SOPWITH SNIPE.  WINDSOCK DATAFILE 46., Bruce, J.M.    Foreword by R.L. Rimell.  Drawings by C.A. Owers.
7 Bruce, J.M. Foreword by R.L. Rimell. Drawings by C.A. Owers. SOPWITH SNIPE. WINDSOCK DATAFILE 46.
Albatros, Berkhamsted, 1994. 
36 pp, 11 5/8" H, soft cover (stapled in wraps). ISBN 0948414618 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs, technical drawings/plans, colour profiles. "The Sopwith Snipe is firmly lodged in the minds of most WWI aeroplane enthusiasts due to the epic one-sided combat fought by Major William Barker on October 27 1918 in which he brought down four Fokker D.VIIs, an action that resulted in a well-earned Victoria Cross for the Canadian pilot. The Snipe had few other opportunities for glory; No .43 Squadron was the first unit to be equipped and made its first Snipe patrol on September 23 1918. Within five weeks nearly 100 Snipes were in France and No.208's Camels were in the process of being replaced by Snipes as the Armistice was dec l a r e d. In the immediate post-war period Snipes served with a dozen RAF Squadrons, 532 being recorded on charge by 1921, and the type soldiered on until 1928 when it was officially declared obsolete. Despite its necessarily limited role in the fi rs t ai r war the Snipe has been a popular choice for modellers and subject of at least two previous monographs and a nubmer of magazine articles. The 46th DATAFILE, however, offers the most comprehensive selection of illustrations on the type y et pub li she d in one volume and contains a great deal of information hitherto unrecorded." Interior - small soft bump at top/bottom corners of text block, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - small soft crease at c orn ers of cove rs. Very Good

Newton Abbot David & Charles 1972 0715349252 / 9780715349250 Second Impression. Hard Cover Very Good Good+ W.R.F. Jenkinson. 
215 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H). B&w illustrations. "Once aptly described as 'chess with a thousand pieces', wargaming can be made as complicated and elaborate as desired, or so simple that even young children can take part. This book - the ideal introduction to the hobby - explains what wargaming is all about, how armies can be assembled and how, on any reasonably-sized table, realistic engagements can be fought by tactical manoeuvring. The basic rules by which forces are moved and casualties assessed are explained, there is practical advice on making one's own soldiers and on conversions, and guidance on how to prepare and lay out realistic battlefield scenes. Another great attraction of the wargaming hobby is the research it invites into famous campaigns of the past, and not the least valuable part of this book is its brief survey of warfare from earliest times to the present day. Here the military tactics of each period are considered, together with the role of the different types of soldiers and their weapons, and there is an extensive bibliography to facilitate research into specific periods of military history." Very small bump at top edge of front board, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, tiny light stain on fore-edge of text block. Dust jacket has been price-clipped, has light edge wear/wrinkling, a few tiny chips, one small tear archivally taped, light browning at inside edges.

SOLO-WARGAMING., Featherstone, Donald.
16 Featherstone, Donald. SOLO-WARGAMING.
New York Frederick Warne 1973 072326063X / 9780723260639 First American Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good- 
192 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H). 60 b&w illustrations. "Many wargamers, particularly during the early stages of their interest in the hobby, are unable to find live opponents to fight on their table-top battlefields. Their efforts at wearing two different hats, as they manipulate both armies, and with the full knowledge of what each intends to do, soon palls. Their interest in wargaming retreats. Then there are those wargamers whose enthusiasm is so great that fighting one, or even two, battles a week is not sufficient, and who are led to seek a means of carrying on their table-top battles when a live opponent is not available. (This book) caters to both, describing innumerable methods of manoeuvring two wargames armies, under such conditions of secrecy and surprise that the result of the battle is in the balance until the last cannon is fired. It opens many doors to ingenious and practical methods of doing battle with model soldiers, raising the pastime in some sense almost to the level of chess. It enables the 'lonely wargamer' to find pleasure rather than boredom in his solitary state." Contents: Why solo-wargaming?; 'Instant' solo-wargaming; Domestic wargaming; The press-gang; Realism through continuous combat; Concealment in solo-wargaming; Personalized wargaming; Solo-wargaming in the New World; Solo musket wargame (by John Schuster, USA); Solo-wargames campaigns; The matchbox system of solo-wargaming; The importance of War Diaries; Chance cards; Tactical cards; Regimental cards; A small spark of courage; More books for solo-wargamers; Battles by mail; Weather in wargames; Wargaming in bed; A Prince of solo-wargamers; Retasol; Setting up a realistic battlefield; Appendices: Model Soldiers - Sources of Supply; Books and Magazines; Rules for Use in Solo-Wargames; Sources of Inspiration and Instruction for the Solo-Wargamer. Very light browning to edges of textblock. Dust jacket has light browning on inside, on the spine and on flap-folds, very light rubbing, very light edge wrinkling. Very Good+/Very Good-
