the Grant books are certainly centred on scenarios that are carefully tailored for wargaming. Very useful.
However, there's more. Taken in chronological order, they document the growth of his (+ family & friends) growth as a SYW wargamer.
Bare bones at the beginning, they add all sorts of extras - siege warfare, water transport, light troops, historical implications, campaigns - fascinating stuff.

I only own 5 of his books but you read & re-read them. BTW you virtually never see them second hand & then for outrageous prices.

Thanks Donald, I'll certainly give them a look. :thumbs:

Mark, here's an example of Grant's maps. Taken with my phone, so not the best shot, but you should get the idea.

Much of a muchness, mate. The only real differences are that you name all the units, not just the pompous buggers in charge of groups, while he shows higher ground in shades of greenish.
