I’ve just heard that Donald Featherstone died yesterday. For those that don’t recognise the name, he served with the Royal Tank Regiment in WWII, but more importantly for wargamers of my age, he wrote over forty books on wargaming and military history. Many of the wargaming books are considered classics. When I was much younger, I borrowed his books (particularly the Tank Battles in Miniature series) from my local library over and over again. He was a significant influence on my early wargaming career, and I spent many happy hours reading his words.
My thoughts are with his family. I hope the knowledge of how much joy his writing brought to myself and many others will give them some little comfort.
