as complete a guide to the hobby of wargaming as you can currently get. If you have a friend or relative who wants to get into this hobby or has only just got into it then buy them this book for Christmas, their birthday or Easter... like having a seasoned wargamer at your elbow guiding you along the way....if you are like me a wargamer of some decades of experience then buy this book. It will remind you why you got into the hobby in the first place, bring back some very vivid memories of “the early days” and make you look at the hobby afresh. .... yes I really, really like this book and make no apologies for laying it on with a trowel! Don’t waste anymore time and get this book into your life now! (The Wargamer

I highly recommend this 519-page book to ANYONE interested in miniature wargaming. The title of The Wargaming Compendium is at least an understatement as this one volume gives the prospective gamer an insight to the beginning of this hobby that will only grow stronger with time.
