Little Wars (Make Me)

In his 1913 book Little Wars, H.G Wells presents a set of rules for playing war with toy soldiers. Through his “wargame” Wells satirically proposed that generals fight imaginary battles on floors instead of the battlefield. The First World War or “War to End all Wars” began a year later. Needless to say it wasn’t the last war.
