American Founding Fathers In Color: Adams, Washington, Jefferson and Others

by Speedy Publishing

In children, education is a marriage between academic structure and sensual inspiration. Playing recruits their natural powers of imagination and reduces boredom or resistance. As an inherent avenue to assimilate the overwhelming amount of data received daily, playing emulates the skills they will need in the future. Indeed, creating examples of rivalry and agreement through active participation and visualization captures the essence of playtime and capitalizes on their interpretation of battle. American history is writ in conflict, survival, and success; and fundamental to this history is the contribution of the Founding Fathers, who forged independence, framed the Constitution, and paved the path to freedom. Analogous to these lessons are those of children. A Color Picture Book on the American Founding Fathers combines the structures of learning while simultaneously creating an interactive scenario of conflict and resolution.

Hordes of Models and Buckets of Dice (Fog of War): Wargames Rules: Optional Rule Supplement

by Nigel Emsen

The Fog Of War rule supplement is designed to add an optional layer to the command and control elements of the rules. The supplement can be used with all three books. “Pikes and Axes”, “Longbow and Lances” and “Gunpowder Period”.

The supplement adds to the game a simple order system that is applied at command group level. It is recommended that you apply the order system at the generals immediately below the army commander. Players may wish to decide to add the order system further down the chain of command.

Also the supplement introduces a level of tension to the game in that there is now a chance not all of your individual movement orders will reach all of the armies units. This adds a nice level of uncertainty to the game.



Lone Survivor: Out of Africa: The Epic Eyewitness Account of Bravery, Sacrifice & Survival

by Martin A. Dugard

“The thrilling story â??Loan Survivor, Out of Africa’ by Martin A. Dugard is a hair raising tale from the lips of a man who was the sole survivor of a flight all the way across Africa during World War 1.” The New York Sun

Thousands of seamen were made prisoners in a thousand different ports during the World War. What was their fate? What, for example became of the men who were taken from their ships in the waters of Africa? Surely some of them escaped, and surely there must have been some wild adventures.

When the war came there were many German ships in the harbor at Capetown. Three hundred sailors and officers on the decks of these ships were herded into a prison camp at the foot of Table Mountain. They were under heavy guard. Escape by sea was next to impossible, and back of Table Mountain lay the Great Karroo, and the vast wilderness of Africa.

Of course, they chose a pitch dark night for their prison break. Beating down the barbed wire barriers, a group of these seamen from Central Europe got away under a hail of bullets. One of these was Martin Dugard, and when the adventure ended, many months later, he was one of the seventeen boys who had fought their way across the length and breadth of Africa. It is an astonishing epic of daring, if there ever was one.

This wild tale related by the only man now alive to tell it, starts on a morning off the coast of Africa when the steamer Java was run down by a British cruiser. From then on the tale pops with excitement, color and dark adventure. It carries us breathlessly from the Cape to Cairo. The dash for freedom extends over a period of two years, and when seventeen haggard lads swim the Suez Canal under the guns of Old John Bull, this story of true adventure reaches a strange and almost incredible climax.

Stories of escape are usually thrilling, but where else will you find one that has nearly the whole vast continent of Africa, from top to bottom, for its setting?

Martin, the sole survivor of the flight across Africa.
