Does anyone have a copy of this supplement that they would be prepared to part with for good hard cash!!

If yes, please let me know on home{at}

I wish you the best of British. As a supplement you can't go wrong regardless of the rules you use for battles set at this level. Super-duper!

I've done a few OOBs using the data therein and done special 'formation' sheets of my own using it. You can find some of the bits, if you dig a bit, here:


Good hunting.

Yes, good luck with finding a copy. I have one but I'm never going to let it go!

Bengazi Handicap scales tactical units for using with the Command Decision rules (individual troop and platoon allocations are "mashed" to reflect more or less equal vehicle numbers per platoon-level element, rather than for instance, Commonwealth units of 3 or 4 tanks per troop vs. Axis platoons of 4 and 5). The actual organic structure of many tactical formations is therefore lost (and their organic maneuver elements filtered in or out to work with the CD gameplay mechanics). If this makes no difference to the level of gaming you're planning, then BH is a nice campaign resource.

I've got one but still use it for Combat Command games.

I think its still in print if you contact the company.

Thanks Thomas, I have been in touch with Test of Battle, but they do not plan to reprint!

I wonder why, in these circumstances, that the publishers don't make a softcopy version available in some format or other.

A little late, but I believe I saw a copy at On Military Matters. It carries Test of Battle products.

Great book, used it for many other systems, just so much incredibly useful information, I lost my copy in a transatlantic move, sadly.
