I'm looking for a mid-1970s UK publication about miniature wargaming World War 2. I remember that it was a hardback with a black and white cover with some Airfix figures and vehicles on it. It had a chapter on conversion of Airfix vehicle and Roco Minitanks. It also contained some rules and an introductory skirmish around the town of St. Croix, I believe.

Sounds like a John Sandars book.

Yes. The la Croix scenario is in Operation Warboard by Gavin Lyall.

I have a copy in my hands at the moment.

I may be prepared to sell it.

What country are you in?

There are copies on sale on eBay.
