Table Top Battle Tactics Book 2


Based on a series of articles written by the author for Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy magazine, this is the second of two volumes that pull together all that tabletop tactical advice under a single cover for easy reference.

In this volume, you get to put into practice all the theory learned in the first book, pitting yourself against a determined enemy in challenging circumstances! Whether your period of choice is ancients, horse and musket, the Second World War or even fantasy or sci-fi, you'll discover plenty of gaming fun in these pages.

With beautifully rendered maps that wargamers will instantly recognise represent easily-available gaming terrain, veteran wargamer Henry Hyde presents no less than sixteen scenarios, each of which can be adapted and staged using your favourite armies, whether then be Ancient Greeks or modern special forces, Wellington's redcoats taking on Napoleon's finest, or Union versus Confederate.

All the scenarios are infinitely replayable, enabling them to be used just for an evening's gaming fun or as exercises for the more seriously-minded student of tactics. They can be used with whatever rules you prefer, and the author considers the different approaches that might be needed when using a selection of popular rulesets. Any of these scenarios will also provide hours of gaming pleasure for the solo gamer, as well as for players with live opponents.

Henry has brought more than five decades of experience to selecting the ideas in the book, and encourages the reader to think about the realities faced by commanders on the ground and the kinds of consideration that need to be given to approaching the battlefield itself, as well as dealing with whatever the enemy might throw at you!

This version of the book has deliberately been designed in black and white to facilitate easy and cheap printing at home if your want your own hard copy. Further versions in colour and as print-on-demand are planned.

Color please, plus the bound version. A full size review would be great also.

I'm planning a colour version. I'll sort out the preview size.

Product Information
File Size:
15.57 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
