Hi JJ,

I haven’t tried Sharp Practice, though it is on my list of things I must get round to one day.  I was really thinking more about the bigger battles of the war: the level of game you could play with rules like British Grenadier (which I have got but haven’t yet played).  I need to go back to the book to find the particular instances Spring cites but I was struck by the number of occasions on which companies seem to be detached from their parent unit for a particular purpose and by the amount of independence given to individual company commanders, particularly when operating in broken/wooded terrain. I was also surprised to find reference to light infantry attacking in column (at Bunker / Breed’s Hill, if  memory serves).
