3.0 out of 5 stars Digital Edition is Good Value, 22 Jan. 2014
By 
This review is from: Wargaming Compendium, The (Kindle Edition)
Henry Hyde writes in the conversational style of 'Old School' Wargamers such as Charles Grant senior and Donald Featherstone and is easy to read. He clearly has a passion for, and deep knowledge of, the subject.

Has he provided 'something for everyone' as has been suggested in earlier reviews? The answer is 'Yes' although there is more in this book for the newcomer to the hobby than the seasoned veteran. For this reason I might be cautious about paying list price for a paper copy and I wonder whether newcomers would feel the same.

Where the book comes into it's own is the fact that I was able to buy it as a e-book (discounted to boot!). Whilst there were some issues with the layout of some pictures and diagrams, these were frustrating but not insurmountable and can be rectified with relative ease should the publishers wish. This was the cause of the mid range rating for the book.

What did work were the annotations and hyperlinks which took you to the intended locations. As a reference guide this book has more to commend it than you may think and I would recommend the digital version for this extra functionality that additionally increases the books appeal to a wider audience.

The layout issues in the digital edition have now been addressed and a revised version has just been released (late February 2014).
