Operation Warboard cover Gavin and Bernard Lyall’s Operation Warboard Wargaming World War II Battles in 20-25mm Scale 23 December 2013
by Gavin and Bernard Lyall
Edited by John Curry
Donald Featherstone said, ‘there have been few wargaming books written as well as Operation Warboard. Gavin Lyall applied his established writing talents to create a wargaming book that in places seemed more like a thriller than a book about a marvelous and engaging hobby'. The book was written for wargaming World War II battles in 20-25mm, with rules that were straightforward, fast and comprehensive. The book also had the innovation of including extensive notes about the thinking behind the rules. The player’s notes discussed the abstractions and generalisations that informed the design decisions, most of which are still issues that rule-writers for this period still contend with. This reprint of the 1976 classic includes a new foreword by Bernard Lyall and new optional rules.
