First Schleswig-Holstein War 1848-50 by Nick Svendsen

Enthused by the new Waterloo to Mons figures I picked up the Helion http://www.helion.co.uk/ book on the first Schleswig War by Nick Svendsen. This is an ideal book for a wargamer. Lots of period black and white illustrations, maps and orders of battle. At the back are four pages of colour uniform plates illustrating 13 uniforms. It was quite expensive (it's a limited print run of 500 copies only) but really looks like the only book I will need.

Once or twice a year I take one of my children for a few days in a European city to use up some of my air miles and hotel room points. It's my daughter's turn and suddenly Copenhagen is looking likely!


  1. ordered my copy on Amazon..blindly painting the figs already without many references!!

  2. A good all round read! I have read my at least twice.
