The Foreign CorrespondentPosted: June 16, 2015
The Society focuses on European conflicts of the nineteenth century (i.e. from the end of the Napoleonic Wars to the beginning of the twentieth century), and they publish a regular quarterly newsletter – THE FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT – and a number of booklets. The latter include:
- The Battle of Nachod by Theodor Fontane, translated by Robert Mantle
- The Hanoverian army and Langensalza by John Pocock
- The Polish Army 1815 to 1831 by W J Fiedler
- The Bavarian Army in the 1866 Campaign by John Pocock
- The Battle of Montebello 1859 by Ralph Weaver
- The Battle of Froeschwiller by Richard Brooks
These booklets cost £6.00 each (including postage).
Membership of THE CONTINENTAL WARS SOCIETY costs £6.00 if – like me – you opt for the PDF version, and it is possible to buy Issues 1 to 69 in PDF format (along with Issues 1 to 5 of MIT EISEN UND BLUT) on a CD for only £6.00. Membership details can be obtained from Ralph Weaver (non-US membership) and Robert Burke (for US membership).
The current issue of THE FOREIGN CORRESPONDENT …
… includes articles entitled:
- The Francs-tireurs in the Franco-Prussian war, 1870-71
- The Feld-Post in the Prussian Army
- A new museum in Gravelotte
- Information Wanted
- A Neapolitan Artillery Officer
- Book Reviews
- Königgrätz 2015 or A Day in the Life of an Itinerant Wargamer by Ernie Fosker
- Comments of the Krupp anti-balloon gun by Rob Morgan
- Salute 2015 report and background to the Society display
- Salute Wargame, a view from the tabletop by Kelvin White
I am looking forward to reading through all the back-issues on the CD, and no doubt they will give me lots of fresh wargaming ideas.
