    I’m afraid the link you included is actually a link to TMP.  Which didn’t load for me.

    But I tracked down your review on your blog.

    Very thoughtful and thorough.  I’m only just started reading my copy, but so far I think you’re spot on.  Well written and eminently readable.

    I’m just immensely enjoying it, and am getting inspired to throw a campaign together even as we speak!   What more could one ask?

    Whoops! Edited now and it should point to the right page on the blog.

    First principle of war: maintain the aim! It’s so important, when planning a wargame campaign, to be absolutely clear about what the aim is – what experience it’s supposed to provide, hence what format it should use.

    I think that is 100% true, especially in the campaign ‘design’ phase. But I would add that knowing exactly how to transfer action from the campaign to the table and back again is equally important in the ‘execution’ phase.

    Thanks – useful review and it looks like Henry has added what will be a very good book for most wargamers looking to do campaigns.
