More on Wikipedia:

Sabin is the author of the “Lost Battles” game system. The game covers battles and campaigns in the Mediterranean and Near East from the Persian defeat at Marathon in 490 BC to Caesar’s victory at Pharsalus in 48 BC. It has been exhaustively tested and refined over the past several years, and is based on Sabin’s decades of research and simulation design on ancient warfare; and it includes an updated copy of his book, with extensive historical and design notes on every scenario. The game can be fought on three levels – the grand tactical, the grand strategic, or a combination of the two.

Philip Sabin is also the author of a new prominent book titled “Simulating War“, available in April 2012.
