The latest issue of the Pike and Shot society magazine has arrived, another top quality edition.
This edition features the announcement of the Bill Braham Memorial essay competition. Bill was a feature of the UK gaming scene who sadly passed away last year. The essay competition should be a fitting tribute to Bill. As is a fascinating article on what 16th century Landsknechts actually looked like by Bill and edited after his death. This article includes a number of beautiful colour period plates.
Two articles cover aspects of the English Civil War. A look at Parliamentarian hand ‘grandoes’ and an analysis of the Edgehill battlefield. Other articles look at the Praslin French cavalry regiment in the Thirty Years War and a history of Gunpowder up to the 17th century. Finally there is a large article on the two armies involved in Glorious Revolution of 1688. This includes detailed description of the armies and a ‘what if’ scenario for if this ‘bloodless revolution’ had led to a battle on Salisbury Plain.
Overall another great edition of this magazine available from here – http://www.pikeandshotsociety.org/
