About the Author

Daniel Mersey was born within a rifle shot of the Royal Small Arms Factory, Enfield; he was taken to the cinema by his very excited Dad to watch Zulu Dawn at the age of four; and he grew up watching Zulu every Christmas and Easter. As a boy his favourite 'toys' were a Martini-Henry carbine and sabre used by the Egyptian army at Omdurman and the (then) newly released Esci Zulu War plastic soldiers. He never stood a chance of avoiding an interest in Victorian colonial warfare. His other miniatures rules include Dux Bellorum (2012), the Origins Award-nominated Lion Rampant (2014), and Dragon Rampant (2015). Peter Dennis was born in 1950. Inspired by contemporary magazines such as Look and Learn, he studied Illustration at Liverpool Art College. Peter has since contributed to hundreds of books, predominantly on historical subjects, including many Osprey titles. A keen wargamer and modelmaker, he is based in Nottinghamshire, UK.


The value of [Osprey Wargame] books is unbelievably good. Generally, $20 can get you an interesting ruleset with great artwork - Jacob Stauttener, Must Contain Minis
