Most miniature wargames take the form of simulating a single battle with the opponents either winning or losing and that's that until the next game. Such games can be a fun test of tactical skill but it can be even more rewarding if they form part of a wider campaign. In a campaign, the players commanding the forces have to make the decisions at the strategic level that determine the context of any battles that occur. The outcome of these battles will, in turn, have strategic consequences for the ongoing campaign'.

Although campaigns can be very rewarding, many wargamers are deterred by the need to produce maps and devise mechanisms for strategic movement, Intelligence, logistics, recruiting reinforcements, keeping track of casualties etc. Henry Hyde's excellent book greatly eases this task with masses of sound advice, concrete suggestions and even a full set of campaign rules useful for any period upto AD 1900. 'Whatever historical or fantasy setting your prefer, Henry shows that even simple campaigns can add extra fun to your gaming.

About Henry Hyde

Henry Hyde has recently become the Editor of Miniature Wargames magazine following its merger with Battlegames. Introduced to model soldiers, Airfix kits and a toy fort when he was a small boy, he has been playing wargames ever since, his interests ranging throughout the annals of history. He also dabbles in skirmish, naval and aerial wargaming and even confesses to a lively interest in fantasy and science fiction. He has a special love of campaigns, the eighteenth century battles of Marlborough and Frederick the Great and siege warfare.

An honours graduate in European History and languages from Sussex University, Henry’s interest in wargaming is firmly rooted in a passion for history. Besides writing, he is a professional graphic designer and enjoys art, photography and music. One of Henry’s greatest passions is for cooking, on which he blames his current waistline.

When not frantically trying to meet deadlines, Henry fills his spare time with blogging, podcasting, tweeting and all those other modern-day activities that prevent us from truly relaxing. He even manages to play the occasional wargame.

Henry lives in the beautiful county of East Sussex.
