At last....

One-Hour Wargames

It has arrived at long last and here is a picture to prove it....




Strictly speaking, it didn't arrive as I had intended in an effort free parcel from Amazon. Instead, I went to the Ian Allan bookshop in Birmingham and bought it. Returning home I immediately cancelled my Amazon order which had no chance of arriving before Xmas.

The book presents nine sets of two/three page rules and thirty scenarios. In some respects it reminds me of the Charles Grant Scenarios for Wargames book. It has options to play every scenario in nine different periods and with variable force levels, around 10,000 combinations if my maths is right. I don't know if this is the holy grail or a mirage but it is rather exciting!

My copy arrived from Amazon on Tuesday. Interesting ideas from Neil as always. A very useful book.

Hi Alan, Nice to hear from you. I think someone must have underestimated the demand (Amazon or Pen and Sword?), they are still showing nearly a two week delay on orders. Having had a chance to look through the book today I'm really impressed. Looking forward to giving them a go!
