Rather old now; although entitled "The Wargame" this is basically a series of potted battle histories illustrated using photographs of table top wargames and some basic maps. There are no orders of battle provided and no information about recreating these battles as wargames. A bit of a missed opportunity.

5.0 out of 5 stars All in all I was pretty chuffed., 25 Mar. 2015

This is a Spanish Language account of a largely forgotten battle of the Peninsular War/ War of Liberation. To be honest my beginners Spanish is struggling with the text so I can't really comment on that. However it contains numerous maps and pictures and a full Order of battle complete with uniform illustrations. The only thing that jars really is the Cavalry figure on the cover in his 1808 uniform which he certainly would not have still been wearing by this point in the war. I am hopeful that with my trusty Spanish dictionary I should be able to make sense of the text as well. All in all I was pretty chuffed.

3.0 out of 5 stars it has some nice pictures in a nice format, 24 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hmm, well. I could have done with less images of Napoleon looking moody and more text about what was in the pictures and maybe something about a) Who painted them and b) facts about the paintings? Bit of a missed opportunity I thought as this is a colourful period an dis depicted in countless works of art. That said, it has some nice pictures in a nice format.

Only slight issue with this is poor colour reproduction but very nicely done book on a rarely touched subject. Enough captions in English to get by.

Excellent Spanish language account of a largely forgotten battle in the Peninsular war. Comes with maps, orders of battle and uniform plates in full colour, even my rudimentary Spanish is able to piece together the action. Best of the series that I have seen so far.

I thought this was a new edition but it is just basically a photocopy of the original with a rather flabby paperback binding.some of the illustrations look to have been cut off. The book is a little dated nowadays and I would suggest either seeking a second hand original or a newer foreign language publication which covers, certainly the troops of the TYW, more comprehensively.

Excellent volume on Austrian cavalry of the Marlburian period. The text is in Italian with some of the picture captions translated to English. The illustrations are plentiful and well rendered, this is a particularly good addition to a useful series.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting and useful book for the Napoleonic enthusiast, 13 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting and useful book for the Napoleonic enthusiast. Written in Italian with some English translations the book provides an overview of some of the campaigns undertaken by the army of the Kingdom of Italy. The slim volume is profusely illustrated and features several pages of full colour plates. These plates are somewhat naive in style being reminiscent of the old Almark series and in some cases the colour reproduction is poor giving colours that contradict the descriptions given in the text. The book does add a little to the information currently available on this army particularly in regard to the earlier (1880-185) period but should be taken with a pinch of salt and in reference to other works.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useful for French anecdotes and period flavour, 22 Nov. 2014

One of the most biased works of military history I have ever read. Useful for French anecdotes and period flavour. For an accurate and detailed account of the campaign I would recommend Petre's work.
