"Practical Wargaming" (Sorry, no underling capability on my laptop's keyboard.) is the best book on historical miniatures wargaming written, even when compared to Donald Featherstone or anybody else. Wesencraft's ground scale of 12" = one mile and figure ratio of 1 figure = 132 make the largest of battles possible on a large table. His combat resolution system makes for quick-moving games. An excellent read.
A hard-to-read font, poor formatting, and abominable reproductions of the original photographs make this a waste of time and money. Some of the explanatory diagrams look as though they were copied on an ancient Xerox machine, and several of the photos are so badly reproduced that one cannot even tell what they are supposed to be.
This is the only item I have purchased from the company doing these reprints and if it is typical of the quality of their books it will be the last. While I suppose we should applaud the fact that someone is making these classic titles available at all, it is absolutely worth paying a much higher price for an original copy.
If I found a copy of this reprint in a used book bin I might consider paying '1 for it; anything more, is more than it is worth.
