The following is taken from the back cover:
“This book is an introduction to the hobby of playing tabletop battles with toy soldiers. This is a fun, interesting and educational pastime for children of all ages. This hobby traces its roots to games played by authors H.G. Wells and R. L. Stevenson in their back yards around the turn of the (20th) century. (As far as we are aware these two people did not play together - psb)
As this book was meant to be a source book, a great deal of information has been packed into it. Big Battles for Little Hands includes:
An introduction to wargaming
A brief history of land warfare
A primer on tactics
A complete set of rules for playing battles: Milk and Cookies Rules
A complete set of rules for playing skirmishes: Blood and Swash
And much more…”
The book covers Ancients, Horse and Musket and 20th Century warfare.
The cover has suffered some very minor scuffs, but otherwise new and unused.
