Overview

Donald Featherstone said, ‘there have been few wargaming books written as well as Operation Warboard.

Gavin Lyall applied his established writing talents to create a wargaming book that in places seemed more like a thriller than a book about a marvelous and engaging hobby.
The book was written for wargaming World War II battles in 20-25mm, with rules that were straightforward, fast and comprehensive. The rules included sections on command, communication, air power, airborne forces, invasion, desert and snow. Of particular note were the simple, but complete rules for the preparation of the battlefield by engineers. Nothing spoils an attacker’s day like being surprised by a dug in infantry company with mines and wires on a reverse slope.

The book also had the innovation of including extensive notes about the thinking behind the rules.

The History of Wargaming Project aims to reprint classic wargaming material and make it available to a new generation of wargamers.
