Kirja-arvosteluja

A wargamer's guide to the French Wars of Religion, a subject otherwise ill served in English. It's obviously enough an amateur labour of love, with some quirks, but pretty good overall. I thought the thematic parts better than the narrative of the Wars.

One quirk I found unnecessarily annoying is the author's decision to use contemporary French forms for names and technical terms rather than modern French or English. This is particularly confusing wrt the terms for various bits of armour, which are confusing enough in a language one knows and has a Wikipedia.
