Review quoted from by Mark Ellis USA, October 2008.

'I really enjoyed the release of this old favourite and was very pleased to see the addtion of new chapters including fantasy and science fiction plus ideas for solo war gaming. I especially appreciated the updated photograghs and line drawings, both old and new. The rule system is much as remember and lends itself to the larger scale figures. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening's wargame. Was fortunate enought to congratulate Donald Featherstone, in person who still has much to offer. A good investment and well worth the money'
