The Seven Books on the Art of War By Niccolo Machiavelli & Henry Neville
eBook (ePub): $9.31
(1 Ratings)
Art of War (Italian: Dell'arte della guerra) is a treatise by the Italian Renaissance political philosopher and historian Niccolò Machiavelli. The format of Art of War is a socratic dialogue....

To these ends, Machiavelli notes in his preface, the military is like the roof of a palazzo protecting the contents. Written between 1519 and 1520 and published the following year, it was the only historical or political work printed during Machiavelli's lifetime, though he was appointed official historian of Florence in 1520 and entrusted with minor civil duties.< Less

“Seven Years" wargaming rule set 1.0 By Michael Schneider
Paperback: $13.88
Prints in 3-5 business days
“Seven Years” is a war game designed to be simple and efficient. At the core are: a two-table engine, the five status definition of units, a flexible command system that can span from... More > cumbersome to almost Napoleonic and last not least a more fluid game sequence, than most common rule sets can provide. While operating at brigade level, it is designed to keep a balance of overall action versus micro management of the troops. For my taste, so called “friction of battle” is a good thing as long as it doesn‘t bring all action to halt or replaces the player entirely. The game system also gives a bit room to manoeuvre. Let us trust in the discipline and drill these soldiers were exposed to on a daily basis. I hope these might be a set of rules you enjoy. I certainly do. Michael Schneider< Less
