Here is an interesting essay about how Harpoon influenced Red Storm Rising.

Makes me want to play Command at Sea.

At least one battle was wargamed using miniatures for Larry Bond and Patrick Larkin's 1991 novel Vortex. The battle was an air assault by paratroopers on a South African base. Bond was not present for the game but Larkin was. I kept records of some sort during the game, but I don't recall what rules set they used.
