Wargames Illustrated 382 - August 2019
(WI382)


FROM THE EDITOR
I remember my old history teacher telling the class “Britain has only ever been successfully invaded three times throughout history. Once by the Romans, then by the Anglo-Saxons and finally by the Normans in 1066”. As a twelve year old boy I just scribbled this down in my jotter and didn’t say “What about the Dutch invasion of 1688 – how did this differ from your distinction of the Norman Invasion?” and “How did the Anglo-Saxon invasion technically differ from the Viking Invasion?” Mainly because I had never heard of the Dutch Invasion/Glorious Revolution at the time and I’m still not technically sure how the Anglo-Saxon invasion differs from the Viking one – other than being more successful. Suffice to say, the history of the invasions of Britain is not quite as straight forward and is significantly more interesting than Mr Dams might have had me and the rest of the class believe.
 
In this issue of Wargames Illustrated we explore some of the more interesting invasions of Britain, including those that failed and some from literature which never actually happened at all, but could have done. Also look out for our features on two new ‘buzzy’ games, Test of Honour Second Edition and SPQR.
