This book aims to continue the Early Wargaming series by recording some of the key early wargaming developments post-World War II.
It contains three sets of early wargaming rules by Tony Bath, Lionel Tarr and Michael Korns.
Tony Bath’s Medieval Wargaming Rules- published in 1956, these were the first rules for ancient and medieval wargaming and include a commentary from Charles Grant.
Lionel Tarr’s 1962 World War II Rules- Lionel Tarr was the first modern wargamer attempting to recreate the battles of World War II. As a result of his own military experience from the Parachute Regiment at Arnhem, his rules show the vulnerability of infantry and the importance of cover.
Michael Korns’ 1966 Modern Wars in Miniature- the first set of skirmish rules with each player representing a single figure on the table top.
The History of Wargaming Project is edited by John Curry. It aims to present the very best wargaming books
