Even More Reading in the Grand Duchy!

Happy Weekend to all of our regular visitors from the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Stollen!

It's been quite a week for old school reading material here in The Grand Duchy. Waiting beneath the mailbox this afternoon was an almost perfect copy of Charles Wesencraft's Practical Wargaming from 1974. Have just thumbed through it very quickly, but the subject matter looks interesting, well-presented, and thought provoking. I'm particularly interested in the chapters on the 18th Century, Napoleonics, and the Franco-Prussian war. Looks like it's going to be a late night reading again. Oh, the pain. The pain. Sigh ;-)

And the Grand Duchess has invited me out to dinner this evening, my choice. I'm thinking that Indian quisine is looking vary good, especially since we haven't eaten it for quite some time. And lucky us -- we've actually got two very different, but very good Indian places here in Bloomington-Normal. Mmmm, I can almost smell the garlic nan bread and lamb saag now. Love it! Lo-ove it!

So, I will leave the Oberfldwebel in charge of the painting desk during my absence this evening. Watch yourselves!

Hi Prince Henry,

AbeBooks.com seems to yield more books at more reasonable prices than Amazon Marketplace. You just have to keep checking back often enough to hit the good deals.

ENnoy the weekend,

What's the basic subject matter of the book? I don't think I've heard of it before, but it looks intriguing.
