There can be few wargamers who have not in some way been influenced by Don's books - especially those of us whose ages run into double figures and start with at least a '4'....
While I never met Don, I know that he was pleased to see many of his books reprinted as part of the History of Wargaming Project. I found two of his books (Naval War Games and Air War Games) early in my wargaming 'career' and both have proved hugely influential. It was with considerable pleasure therefore that I contributed photos, a revised chapter and a game to the expanded edition of Air War Games published last year.
I'm sure that much will be written about Donald Featherstone over the coming days, so I will add simply that his place on my own bookshelves is guaranteed.
