H.G.Wells playing Little Wars

H.G.Wells playing 'Little Wars'. His book of the same name, published in 1913, described a set of rules for playing with toy soldiers, and formed the basis of hobby wargaming which is still popular today. The picture shows Wells on the left, taking a measurement with a piece of string to work out the distance his forces may move. His opponent on the right awaits his turn, while the umpire, seated, times the move with a stopwatch. Before play began, the curtains which can be seen, would have been drawn to divide the battlefield and allow each player to set out his forces in secrecy.
