Early US Gridded Wargames

These pictures are from Making and Collecting Military Miniatures, a book by Bob Bard and published in the States in 1957. I am indebted to Doug from Unfashionably Shiny for drawing this book to my attention. One chapter considers wargaming at the time in the United States, including rules, on Wellsian lines.

Here Herbert Sherlock displays his 54mm gridded wargame.

It would be great to get a look at his rules. I wonder how long ago he wrote them? (Another missing piece of hobby history maybe?)

Reminds me of the boardgame 'Battlecry' without the cards.
