I just read on the Volley & Bayonet Yahoo Group List that Greg Novak passed away recently. Originally I was going to post a follow up on a hobby project but thought I would at least pay mention to what I can only describe as a legend to our hobby. Guys like Greg have advanced wargaming to the wonderful hobby we know it as today in my opinion.
I never had the pleasure of meeting Greg, but I do own quite a few of his works and I can tell you that if his past products are any guide, then we have all felt quite a loss. I have never read more scholarly or more intensely researched material on the American War for Independence or other conflicts. With guys like Greg Novak and Frank Chadwick - if you saw their name on the rules, you knew it was high-quality and elegant work. Thank you Greg! You will be missed.
