Introduction

Ten soldiers wisely led will beat a hundred without a head.

Hello and welcome to my blog.

I’ve been a long time history lover who has recently gotten into historical wargaming.

My love started in the ancient world at a young age. I remember flipping through books on ancient Greece and Rome before I was old enough to understand much more than the pictures and it just developed from there.

Interestingly, I never much enjoyed history at school. Even though I would learn about it in my own time and read books and play games, something about the endless dates and dreary textbooks sucked all the life and narrative out of historical events. Thankfully that wasn’t enough to dampen my interest and my curiously has only broadened.

I’m pretty well read on ancient through medieval history, in both the East and the West, and in the past year or so have been delving more into the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Nineteenth and twentieth centuries will be sure to follow in short order, though I know enough to know there’s a huge depth of discovery before me!

I got into wargaming just a little over a year ago. I’d dabbled in the fantasy/sci-fi stuff very briefly in my teens, but had never taken to it fully. I’m not sure why it took me so long to try historicals, but I’m glad I did!

On this blog I intend to document wargaming projects and history, mostly for my own enjoyment, but if others find what I share interesting then that’s just an added bonus!

Thanks for reading,

Matthew
