Overview

Donald Featherstone's classic wargaming book, War Games, was first published in 1962. It was largely responsible for turning a somewhat obscure hobby into a popular pastime across the world.

This revised edition includes new material including a foreword by Paddy Griffith.
There are five sets of classic rules in the book:

-Tony Bath's Ancient Wargaming Rules
-Lionel Tarr's Modern Wargaming rules. (Modern being WWII)
-American Civil Wargaming Rules
-Simple WWII rules
-Skirmish rules for colonial warfare

Each set is clearly explained. There are also three accounts of ealy wargames; a battle from the fantasy world of Hyboria, an American Civil War action and the encounter on the St James Road between the British Grenadier Guards and the German panzer grenadiers in WWII.

The book is a piece of wargaming history and is published as part of the History of Wargaming Project.
