Issue 3 (July/August 2006) – The Tactical Use of Forests in Your Wargames
Issue 4 (September/October 2006) – Plunder and Pillage – a raid scenario to fetch supplies
[NOTE: this issue also contains a marvelous article about a refight of the Peter Young „Battle of Sittangbad“ from his „Charge“book, that accurately recreates all of the forces and terrain featured in the Charge book.]

[NOTE: this issue also has an article about a recreation of the Grant „Mollwitz“ scenario at Partizan. Grant himself participates in the game and brought all of the original plastic Spencer Smith figures that featured prominently in the book, „The Wargame“.]

Going forward, Battle Games were only numbered by issue number, without the month dating.
The Wargamers‘ Annual
In 2009, Charles commenced publishing an annual magazine on wargaming which featured written contributions by an All-Star list of wargamers including Phil Olley, Barry Hilton, Stokes Schwartz and many, many more including, ahem, myself. I apologize for leaving anyone’s name off of this short list. The magazines were probably inspired by the ones that Duncan MacFarlane did for his Wargames Illustrated publication (these were the four issues with the yellow covers). All of these new Annuals are published by Partizan Press. In 2014, Charles had so much content available that he added a second Summer Special issue for each year.
2010 – Volume 1 Annual for 2010 (78 pages)
2011 – Annual for 2011 (88 pages)
2012 – Annual for 2012 (88 pages)
2013 – Annual for 2013 (increased from 88 pages to 112 pages)
2014 – Annual for 2014 (120 pages)
2014 – Summer Special for 2014 (72 pages)
2015 – Annual for 2015 (72 pages)
2015 – Summer Special for 2015 (72 pages)
2016 – Annual for 2016 (72 pages)
(there might be a Summer Special, but I am not sure of this)
Links to Book Reviews that I have done on my blog
The following is a list of book reviews (click on the links to my blog reviews) that I have done on my blog. It looks like I need to do a few more:
Well there you have, nearly all of the articles and books writen or published by Charles S. Grant listed in one place and at your disposal to find and peruse. For a long time I had been trying to find the TTT scenario that I finally found in Issue 17, so in the course of gathering all of the information, I happened to stumble upon the scenario, much to my joy.
There are probably a number of other Charles S. Grant articles that I have missed, notably those prior to 2008 when I first became acquaited with Charles‘ articles and books. I like his writing so much that I will usually buy the books sight unseen, because I know that the content therein will provide many enjoyable hours of reading or the playing of wargame scenarios. There are some other Grant articles in Practical Wargamer magazine, which is now out of print, edited and published by Stuart Asquith.
I continue to be enamored by the continuing conflict between the Grand Duchy of Lorraine and the Vereingte Frei Stadt armies. I am a bit partial to the VFS side of the frey since it has a Prussian-like quality to it. I have no doubt that there will be many more books to add to this list in the future.
