A Classic is back!

In 1964, Bob Bard wrote this excellent text on the events at Gettysburg.  His vivid, day-by-day account brings the Battle back to life.  He skillfully imparts a feel for the harsh days at Gettysburg.  Bard followed up by explaining the uniforms and flags of the combatants, and finally introduced a simple miniature wargame that could be used to replicate the battle.  As the premier purveyor to the military miniature hobby, Bard's work was aimed at the military miniature collector and the budding miniature wargamer.

We have faithfully reproduced the text and illustrations of "Four Days at Gettysburg".  Written during the heyday of the Civil War centennial years, it is a unique little work that deserves a place in the library of every serious Civil War buff and military miniature collector. 35pp with map and illustrations.

US Price: $9.00
