Back in the 70s, “Operation Warboard” was written by Gavin Lyall the thriller writer. It would be interesting to find out how much his wargaming experience informed his action scenes.
Although I haven’t read any of his thrillers, I have a copy of that book on my shelves. he wrote it with his son Bernard.
