NOW AVAILABLE - Wargaming the Sugar Islands Campaign - A Guide to the British Expedition to Martinique and Guadeloupe in 1759

I received the printed copies of the book from the printer today. It has been a quite a journey but I have enjoyed it very much and hope that you will enjoy reading about and gaming the battles and encounters on the islands.

Wargaming the Sugar Islands Campaign is an 80 page A5 glossy bound guide to the British Invasion of Martinique and Guadeloupe. It contains a detailed summary of the events on both islands, the leaders, the forces involved and the islands themselves. There is information on suitable figures, scenery and rule sets to use and loads of period maps detailing the landing areas and land fought over. I have commissioned two pen and ink drawing from Chris Gregg which sit in the centre of the book. Lastly the book also contains 6 scenarios each with a detailed colour layout and with special rules including a simple campaign and special events. 


Background to the Campaign
The voyage to the Islands
Scenarios for Martinique
The Actions on Guadeloupe 
The End of the Campaign
Scenarios for Guadeloupe
Notes for Wargames

Got mine by the post at the beginning of the week. A very nice book and an enjoyable read. It gave me a lot of ideas for wargaming this campaign and I really appreciated the "wargamer friendly" approach. You did a sterling work, Stuart and I hope it's the first book of a collection.

Thanks for the kind words.
I'm taking a look at background to another tropical adventure at the moment with a view to kicking things off early in the new year. So there will be more!
Lovely blogs you have, I'm sure you'll be able to use your pirates for some of the scenarios in the book.
