From Library Journal
According to the author, "a wargame is a combination of 'game,' history and science. Basically, it's glorified chess." This excellent introduction to wargames can be enjoyed by both novice and experienced player. Dunnigan, a long-time game designer and author of the first edition of The Complete Wargames Book ( LJ 7/80), begins by breaking down a battle scenario into clearly explained moves and options. He builds on this analysis with playing tactics for both paper and computer games and continues with specifications necessary for the aspiring game designer. An overview of the history of wargames is included, as is a fascinating insider's look at how wargames were used in the Persian Gulf War as a tool of military strategy. Recommended for libraries with gamers and for military libraries.
