    I could be lulled into thinking that this edition was my early Christmas present. First a great article from Rich on my favourite period which just happends to be ACW. It comes complete the solo mechanics, a nice set of of simple rules and even photographs. Then Chris Hahn delves into my second favourite period,Victorian Colonial, with the intrepid hussar Churchill and produces a highly polished and readable article and another book now on my wish list. Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better Kevin White proved me wrong with another of his excellent articles this time on the ACW. So thanks guys for such a great, if early, present.
