Like many of us, his books in my local library were my first introduction to the wargames rules and I think I had his Wargaming Airborne Operations and Skirmish Wargames on a nearly permanent basis.
I don't know how many times I read Wargaming Airborne Operations but it was my favourite wargames book in my teens with its pictures of the same Airfix soldiers that I had in my collection. In many respects I think that is part of the reason I loved it so.
I think I'll dig it out tonight and re-read the chapters on Crete and Market Garden for old times sake...
