Author Biography

Daniel Mersey has written several sets of miniatures rules and has been a regular contributor to hobby magazines since the mid 1990s. Although best known for his writing on the medieval and colonial periods, the Desert War has long held a fascination for him like many gamers this interest may be traced back to the endless boyhood fun gifted by unpainted Airfix Eighth Army and Afrika Korps toy soldiers and a boundless fascination with Desert War tanks. He lives in Worthing, West Sussex.
