Although the author is a late convert to the joys of Napoleonic wargaming, he soon began to see why so many wargamers love the period. As a result, he set out to write several sets of rules that would use similar game mechanisms to those in his other PORTABLE WARGAME rules, and that would enable him to fight a range of small, medium, and large battles on a relatively small tabletop. This book is the result. Please note that all the rules have been designed to be used with a gridded tabletop made up of squares or hexes.

These rules have been designed so that players can fight typical small battles between European Colonial armies and their opponents during the period between 1875 and 1910. They use a gridded battlefield, which removes the need to measure both move distances and weapon ranges, thus speeding up the whole process of fighting a wargame. It also removed any doubts or possible disputes as to whether or not a unit has moved too far or if it is in range or not. They also incorporate simple combat resolution systems that likewise speed up game play. The armies needed to fight battles with these rules are small by most wargames standards. This means that you can 'raise' lots of small armies rather than a couple of big ones.

The Hertfordshire Masters' Lodge was formed in 1920, and many of its Founders, early Worshipful Masters, and Brethren served in the armed forces before and during the Great War. This book serves as a record of the military careers of some of those Brethren, and it is appropriate that it should be published in the centenary year of the end of that terrible war.

Industry consolidation, mergers, changes to business models, the emergence of new threats all require managers to understand highly complex situations, assess risk and opportunity and make informed decisions. How can senior managers do this effectively when so often they are wrestling with brand new scenarios? One of the emerging solutions is business wargaming. Daniel F. Oriesek and Jan Oliver Schwarz provide the first comprehensive look at wargaming as a business tool in a book that explores the anatomy and success factors of a typical wargame. The authors explain how and when wargaming can be used to test strategies, plan and prepare for crises, manage change or increase your organization's ability to anticipate and adapt for the future. Creating imaginative and credible scenarios, and testing them against smart opponents who are eager to find holes and counter your strategy, allows you to learn about a plan or a new venture in the security of the conference room rather than learning the hard way when you go live. Business wargames are sophisticated but they are also very demanding in terms of time and resources. Business Wargaming: Securing Corporate Value will enable you to assess the potential value of the technique for your own organization, to understand what you will be committing to and develop an informed business case and brief for working with the organization that will facilitate the game.

A miniatures wargame of gritty futuristic combat, Tomorrow's War projects the tactics and technology of today's military conflicts hundred's of years into the future.

Using the popular Force on Force rules as a basis, Ambush Alley Games has created the most realistic and tactically challenging science fiction wargame on the market. The rulebook includes a detailed optional 'future history' and a campaign system so that individual battles can be linked into an ongoing storyline.

In June 1988, the set of wargames rules for all-arms land warfare from Platoon to Battalion level during the period from 1925-1950, written by Phil Barker were published. They proved very popular and were widely used but have been out-of-print for many years. They were followed by sets, initially for the period from 1950-1975 and later extended to cover the period 1950-2000. These too have been out-of-print for many years. Now both sets have been gathered together into a single book and published here.
