Battle of Lobositz PDF Available

Now that I can download PDF files into the new Fife & Drum Miniatures website, I think that I will start posting some of the old historical battle accounts that Jim Mitchell and I wrote for the Seven Years War Association Journal when we were editors, on different shifts:

I get a fair number of requests for back issues and articles and it occurs to me that the new Fife & Drum Miniatures web site is the right place to make the articles available for free. It is my intention to have the web site be more than just an on line store for the purchase of miniatures, I also want it to be a place where enthusiasts of 18 Century military history can go to obtain information on battles, wargame scenarios, painting guides and much more.

I was able to reduce the size of the Road To Philadelphia 1777 PDF file from 17MB to around 800KB, thanks to Henry Hyde, who generously sifted the document through his magical software and reduced the size of the document without losing any resolution in the pictures. Thank you Henry. :)


  1. Thanks for your generosity Jim, I've downloaded the lot.

  2. Bravo, sir . . . and a salute to Mr. Hyde as well.
