Close Quarters Is Out

My latest book, Close Quarters, a supplement for Cruel Seas is available from Warlord Games and all good bookshops/wargame shops for twenty of your English pounds.

This one took six months of intensive work, mostly spent on research.

I have to admit, I am inordinately and shamefully proud of it.


  1. And a fine piece of work it is, too.
    Thank you for all your efforts.

  2. That’s excellent John, and can understand how proud you are

  3. Dear John,
    When I was an undergrad I became fascinated by the idea of wargaming the destruction of the Spanish squadron when it broke out from Santiago. Not much of a battle, you reasonably say, but the US fielded a couple skiffs with Colt machineguns which fascinateIt would fit right in with what you've got here.

    All best
    Dave (thinking back 50-odd years)
