This for me is diving into the remote past.
My first experience with paper soldiers dates back to when I was 7 years old and my aunt told me about the Iliad using paper soldiers made by her.
Then came the book by A.G. Smith "Civil War Paper Soldiers".
Today thanks to Peter Dennis I rediscovered the paper soldiers, I recommend them to everyone, they are an inexpensive alternative to miniatures.
