Fire & Fury Scenarios List

Since I have been off work for the past few days owing to amateur thespian activities I thought I would use some of the time profitably (just to prove to Tony Cane that I can engage in list related business in my own time as well as that of Data Sciences' !)

To this end I have drawn up a list of Fire and Fury scenarios that have been published as opposed to ones hanging around on web pages or (in my case) ring binders. I know the list is incomplete, Mail me personally, then I can update the list with any new stuff and post it here when there's enough additions to make it worthwhile. I know, for instance, that there are other scenarios in the Zouave as I have seen them in the index, but I don't have their full details.
