After a departure in Volume 5 to cover Marlborough's Big Four, Charles returns to the mid-18th Century and the Seven Years War with Volume 6. There are five battles in all. The four-part format for each game is unchanged. The background is briefly described, then a detailed account of the actual action with orders of battle, consideration on how to wargame the battle, and finally the wargame itself.

The five battles covered range from the relatively large battle at Moys to a small skirmish near Baiersdorf. The Actions Action at Mehr and Eilenburg provide interesting challenges for both players. The Battle of Closter Camp presents the opportunity for considerable confusion, with the early part of the action taking place in the dark.

The chapter on command and staff looks at the various staff structures in the major armies, before looking at the wargame implications.

There have been a number of significant changes in The Wargame Rules since they were published in 2012, and these changes are summarized in a short chapter.

Finally, to help regular readers find in which volume previous battles have appeared, there is a table: A Catalogue of Battles Fought and Published in Wargaming In History and Refighting History.
