No charge! Battlegames three-year celebration special

Watermarked PDF

"No charge!" is the headline on our special edition celebrating three years of Battlegames. Containing one article from each of the first 18 issues, this giant 82-page edition is packed full of the kind of fun and informative stuff that our readers tell us they love about Battlegames.

So, whether you are completely new to the magazine and would like to get a taste of the famous Battlegames flavour, or someone who has bought one, two, a few, or even all these issues, this is our digital gift to you.

Lift the gloom of approaching winter and discover the quality of wargames writing and superb design that has won us a hard-earned reputation in this competitive market.

Go right ahead: it's true, it's completely free, nothing, rien, nichts, nada, zilch.

I hope you enjoy this special edition!

Battlegames is a throwback in some ways to the way wargames magazines used to be and that is not a bad thing (I like the new WI, but I like this as well) - this freebie is an excellent introduction to the magazine and a great idea... [...]

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.
