Don Featherstone RIP

I have just learned that the grandfather of wargaming, Don Featherstone died yesterday. I never met the man, but I certainly knew his work. His books in the local library were the first introduction to wargaming for me and I still have some of his works on my shelves now. I was recently given a copy of his Battlefield Walker's Guidebook for my birthday. Whether you use his rules or not his style of writing was brilliant, everything explained was in detail and the reasons for certain rules explained clearly and rationally. I particularly like the Down at the Wargames Club sections in his Complete Wargaming.
