War gaming is an interesting and challenging competition sport that 
now extends into video gaming. The classic war game employs dioramas 
and very accurate models of troops, weapons and vehicles to re-enact 
battles from history, both famous and lesser known engagements. It 
requires the development of detailed knowledge of the conflicts and 
attention to detail, combined with a requirement to think quickly and 
understand tactics and strategy.
The author has provided a detailed review of the critical information 
from history, such as the relative capabilities of tanks and guns. 
This provides the knowledge that is fundamental to war gaming the 
battles of the North African campaigns of WWII. Narrative and tables 
present this information in an easy to understand manner that 
provides all the established enthusiast gamer needs without baffling 
those novices who will benefit from such an introduction.

There is a very good full colour plate section that shows typical 
models and sand table layouts. There is also a very good section 
that lists suppliers, describing their offerings, and a section with 
recommended further reading titles.
