So, what can I come up with as a fun way to decide who'll get this... Hmm!?
which is your favourite post, or topic, here on A Question Of Scale, and why?
Please leave your answer here, as a comment on this post. The answer I like the best - and that's assuming I get any!? - gets the book, and their winning reply will be posted here next Sunday. Once the competitions over, I'll post the book to whoever has won on the following monday.
UPDATE: Well, my deadline has been and gone, and not a single soul has responded to the competition. Obviously that's rather disappointing. Traffic to my blog has increased, however. So that's something. Still, I am a trifle sad that I've had nobody at all respond.
What to do? I think I'll extend the deadline a bit, and embark on a more energetic campaign to publicise the giveaway. So, if you're interested, watch this space. Or better still, help me fill it, by taking part!
Thanks to Marc (the plastics fan!?), via TMP, I'll be extending the deadline for the competition to midday next Sunday, 17th June (also Father's Day!). So, who knows, you might even want to win this as a gift for Pops?
FINITO! COMPETITION CLOSED.
Thanks to all who took part, and any who just had a look at the blog. The reason why has now passed. And it only remains for me to pick a winner. I'll be doing that at some point this afternoon, and posting the decision here against 6pm.
[some time later] ... so, it's just gone six...
Even though I only had three entries to choose from, it was tough deciding, but I've gone with Paul Howarth's reply:
'Hmmm. It's a tough one. I enjoyed reading different takes on films and comparing experiences at Waterloo 2015, but I think my favourite is the Funcken post. When I was in primary school my headteacher (who brought his 15mm Napoleonics into school for a group of us to wargame with on a Friday afternoon) lent me his copies. I made the mistake of arranging my first metal figures (Warrior French) on ne of the pages and was distraught to see the marks they left. Fortunately, he was more focused on inspiring a love of history and I ended up buying my own copies. This was responsible for me painting my French infantry as anything from Confederation of the Rhine instead. Terrific books, very atmospheric.
** If you're fascinated/obsessed by d'Erlon's wanderings, and the role his 1er Corps played, or could've played, in the One Hundred Days, then this is the right sort of book for you.
