Wargame Campaigns

Published by C S G Publications

Pages 153 plus covers

Published in 1995 and written by C S Grant, this book provides you with all you need to know about setting up and starting your own campaign in any period in history.
If you are starting up your own campaign as a beginner or a veteran in this wargaming world, this book provides you with all the basic means to start you on your way or the book may give you some extra ideas to add to your own set of rules.
Wargame Campaigns covers Land, Sea and Air, starting you off with maps, movement, weather, armies and even personalities.
If you want to enter the world of politics and finance, there are ideas for them too.
This is another book that all wargamers should have in their bookcases.
It’s a real gem of information for the realism of war with sections on casualties, hospitals, prisoners and recruiting. And with all this, there is a section on how to keep campaign diaries and basic book keeping.
I do like the way Mr Grant has set out this book. It’s very easy to follow no matter how long you have been doing this hobby.
After reading Wargame Campaigns, it has certainly made me re-think about my own set of homemade rules.
With so many books out now about wargaming, rules and campaigns, will we ever have a set of rules that we will be happy with?
