Featherstone served in the Royal Armoured Corps during World War II and discovered our hobby after reading H. G. Wells' Little Wars. He started becoming a leading advocate for wargaming during the 1960s and published over 40 books on the hobby and military history. Many veteran Trumpeter gamers remember reading those volumes - and many of the books are still available in local library systems.
He will be missed.
