Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy 82 are coming soon...or at least before Christmas I hope:)
The theme are WWII in the desert, not much Swedish connection there, so I hope my article and scenarios, revolving around the Swedish Crusades to Estonia, will find you well.
Seems like one of my pictures also made it to the cover :)
Feature: "Swedish steel in the conquest of the Baltic - The Swedish Crusades"
According to the Eric Chronicles, King Eric rallied knights, farmers, and servants from the entire Swedish realm in what was known as the Ledung fleet, to combat the heathens. The King appointed Birger as the leader of the crusade. The chronicles tell us that the men were well-armed with weapons, helmets, and armour, and the women cried as the men embarked to sail across the Baltic Sea.
