Achtung Schweindehund is billed as A Boys Own Story of Imaginary Combat. It is that, and very much more too. Harry Pearson tells not only his story, but also the story of modern miniature historical wargaming. He is English and tells of growing up about the same time as I grew up in America, fifty years ago. Mr. Pearson describes the models, the friendships, the trends, and characters who populate the wargame world.
Published in 2008 by Abacus, London, UK.
I found the book funny and I have many friends that are very similar to the people described in this book. This is a great book. I got it from Amazon for less than $10. Highly recommended.
