Little Wars is a set of rules for playing with toy soldiers, written by H. G. Wells in 1913. A game for boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games and books; With an Appendix on Kriegspiel. Little Wars included fairly simple rules for infantry, cavalry, and artillery in the form of a toy 4.7 inch naval gun that launched projectiles, usually small wooden dowels to knock down enemy soldiers. In addition to it being a war game, the book hints at several philosophical aspects of war. The book is written in a whimsical style and illustrated with amusing drawings and photographs of a game being played that Wells describes in the book. Wells also gives a description of the game from the view of one of the Generals in the battle bombastically relating his memoirs. Herbert George "H. G." Wells (1866–1946) was an English author, now best known for his work in the science fiction genre.
