Possibly the sort of wargame H.G Wells might have developed if he had been a child in the 1970s. But perhaps not. Written by Tim Gow (shown left) and Bertrand Plastique, the book recreates battles from the era of the Cold War.

Based on the original ideas of H.G. Wells, this book brings the original toy soldier rules up to date to recreate wars from the time of the Cold War onto the wargamer's table top or preferably, his lawn.

The rules grasp the essentials of Cold War combat; movement, close assault, direct fire, artillery and air support. They also include additional rules to cover the complexities of engineering, smoke and the wider air battle. They do so in a style reminiscent of Little Wars, just with tanks and aircraft.

These rules are straightforward, but comprehensive toy soldier rules that allow the wargamer to experience the battles, actual and potential, from those days.
