Seven Years War Bibliography

By Michael Cannon / November 8, 2012
Arquebusiers de Grassin

I was searching the internet for a review on a set of rules and found this on TMP from 2004. I pulled it out and reformatted it for general use. The author was Steve Bruce. His email to me is as follows:

I don’t have any problem with you putting that up on your site. Its actually part of an old bibliography from the history I wrote a few years back on British, French, Spanish and Indian Colonial history 1700 to 1774. Also wrote a full rule set with army lists for all the various conflicts, points picks or random generation basis, plus if I recall correctly orders of battle with named officers for over 500 battles and skirmishes.

I never got around to publishing any of it as real work took over my life unfortunately.

About the author

Michael Cannon

I have been wargaming as long as I can remember. I met my wife when I was 14 and had been gaming long before that so that should give you an indication as to how long it has been. One of the first games I owned was Anzio by Avalon Hill. I drove over to the hobby shop in the snow to pick it up as I finally had the money to get something! I can remember playing with Airfix figures and Roco tanks back in the 6th grade and before.
