The Portable Napoleonic Wargame

Although the author is a late convert to the joys of Napoleonic wargaming, he soon began to see why so many wargamers love the period. As a result, he set out to write several sets of rules that would use similar game mechanisms to those in his other Portable Wargame rules, and that would enable him to fight a range of small, medium and large battles on a relatively small tabletop. This book is the result.

Please note that all the rules have been designed to be used with a gridded tabletop made up of squares or hexes.

This book has ten chapters, four sets of rules, three exemplar battle reports, four appendices, a bibliography, and over 140 illustrations.
