|This is supposed to be the first in a series of books. The production values
are very good, and the editing was well done. The authors have done a great
job selecting interesting scenarios. The reason this is called "Skirmish
Campaigns" is that the book provides information to link the various skirmish
scenarios into a mini campaign, in which the outcome of one skirmish affects
which scenario is played next and to some extent the forces involved.|
other really brilliant aspect of the booklet is that the forces involved in
each scenario have a base force and a table to roll for additional forces
that would likely have been available. This makes playing the same scenario
over and over interesting, because the force mixes will rarely be the same.
The campaign description at the front of the book is well written,
informative, and interesting. If you want a primer on a less-studied
campaign, this is as good a starting point as any Osprey book - with all
the scenarios to boot. There have been lots of scenario books published,
but this one is really unique, and well worth the money I paid. Five stars!
I am eagerly awaiting the France 1940 and Poland 1939 books that are planned!
