The Don

The end of an era.....

I learn today that Donald Featherstone has passed away. Although I have never meet him, spoken with him or corresponded with him, he has been ever present in my life through his books. I am genuinely saddened by his death and also by the feeling that this really is the end of an era. Will we have another 100 years of wargaming? Who knows but I hope we do and also that Don will live on wherever games are played with toy soldiers.
