The next PDF with the stats for all involved in 'Operation Husky, the Invasion of Sicily 1943, which will also appear in the next 'Forgotten Battles' book on that campaign.
Sneaky peak... the third 'Forgotten Battles' book is being play-tested as I write... its Russia folks! 1942.
There is some discussion whether it should be 1942, Part 1. There is so much material to work with!
We will keep you up to date on developments.
Review of the rules
Excellent review of ‘The War on the Ground’ rules in the latest edition of ‘Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy magazine!
Just some of the comments made by the reviewer.
‘...arguably the best WW2 rules I have come across’
‘... anyone who wants their WW2 games to have a real period feel should try these rules.’
‘... an unknown daVinci masterpiece of WW2 gaming.’
‘... action looks and feels ‘right’. This is in contrast with many battalion-level rules that end up feeling like a platoon-level skirmish.’
He does make comment that these rules are not for a newcomer, and he is right. His comments about making things more clear are also accurate, so a FaQ has been added to this website to clear queries up.
We do listen to constructive criticism! 😊
