Here is the blurb from Amazon:
But this book isn't being published by Green Ronin. It is being published by Osprey Adventures (part of Osprey Publishing). Osprey are better known for their books that give all sorts of background details that are useful for wargaming in historical periods, but this book about dwarves is definately a fantasy book. (And there is an earlier book, called Orc Warfare, and another book due later this year, called Elf Warfare that both have Chris Pramas as the author.)Amazon page for Dwarf Warfare wrote:Despite their short stature, Dwarves are amongst the toughest fighters of all the races. Thanks to their great strength and stamina, Dwarves march to battle in thick armor and carrying numerous heavy weapons. This book compiles all of the information known about these grim warriors and how they practice war. From an initial examination of the fighting methods of the individual Dwarf soldier, it expands to look at how they do battle in small companies and vast armies. It covers all of their troop types from their axe men that form the front lines of battle to their deadly accurate crossbowmen, and noting their specialist troops such as their famous siege-engineers. Also examined are their tactics in specific situations such as underground fighting and fighting in mountainous terrain. Finally, the book examines a few specific battles in great detail in order to fully demonstrate the Dwarven way of war.
The reviews of Dwarf Warfare imply that Chris Pramas included stories of great dwarven battles, and I would have thought that place names would need to be included in that sort of thing.
Does anyone know if these Warfare books have a campaign setting/world built into them? Does anyone know how many books are planned for this product line (which seems to be on a one-book-per-six-months schedule)?
