Dr John Lambshead designed the award-winning computer game, _Frederick Forsythe's_ Fourth Protocol, which was the first icon-driven game, was editor of _Games & Puzzles_ and _Wargames News_, and has written a number of wargaming rules supplements for Games Workshop. He also wrote the officially licensed Dr Who gaming rules for Warlord Games. He was co-author, with Rick Priestley, of _Tabletop Wargames, A Designer and Writers_ _Handbook (_Pen & Sword Books, 2016). When not designing games he is a novelist writing SF&F for Bane Books. He lives in Rainham, Kent.
"Lambshead has drummed up streamlined rules where every soldier and
intensity are vital. His basic rules are supported by special
situational protocals and scenarios so players can re-create
everything from history's military clashes to showdowns between Old
West gunfighters or science fiction combat among space marines."--

"From the 95th Rifles scouting for Wellington, Western Gunfights and WWI Trench Raids, through WWII Parachute Assaults or Special Forces Strikes to Afghanistan, or even Space Marines storming a space station, Squad Firefight's elegantly simple system allows you to focus on proper tactical decisions rather than rolling buckets of dice or calculating masses of modifiers."-- "AMPS Indianapolis"
