  1. It’s a lovely book, probably my favourite wargaming book of all time, but it’s a bit of a stretch to claim that “everything you need is here”. There are no rules for LMGs, light mortars, anti-tank rifles, direct HE fire, smoke, or anti-personnel mines, and nothing to stop target acquisition being automatic for everything in line-of-sight. Intelligent wargamers will have little diffculty adding appropriate rules to suit themseves, and Charles Grant’s exposition of how rules are designed — still pretty much the only thing of its kind, as far as I am aware — will help enormously. This is very far from an “everything you need” product in the manner of today’s huge, glossy rulebooks and figure ranges and their more spoon-fed appoach — and all the better for it, in my opinion.
