Stamford Bridge in Wargames Illustrated 365

Towards the tail end of last year, the team at WI asked me to write an article on the Battle of Stamford Bridge, emphasising the 'surprise attack' element of the battle - which is interesting in itself because that aspect of the battle is generally overlooked.

Anyhow, if you're interested in my suggestions for refighting the battle - breaking it down into several phases - check out the March 2018 edition of Wargames Illustrated.

There's also an overview of the new edition of Saga, and a couple of my own games get passing mentions, so all in all it's been a good read to me!

And if that article piques an interest in the period, you can grab a copy of my Wargamer's Guide to 1066 and the Norman Conquest HERE (or from your favourite, tax-paying online book vendor).
