Postal Blitz!

Look what the postman left on the doormat while I was out shopping;

124 pages of superb Lardie goodness; packed full of all the information you'll ever need to play Chain of Command in the Western European theatre in 1940. There is a huge number of army lists for different formations for the Belgians, Dutch, French, British, Germans and Italians, plus five new scenarios. There are even rules for Fifth Columnists, Civilians and Germans disguised as Nuns (or Belgian etc police officers). Of course, because of the role played by dive bombers, there are rules for deploying Stukas too.

As usual, the book is a lavish production with colour pictures and plenty of explanation. I've just had a flick through so far, but I am already wondering which units I really want to deploy. So many choices! So many support options. It is going to be a tough call. The only thing I do know is that I'll be building my forces in 15mm and they will be from the excellent Peter Pig early war range.


  1. I didnt pre-order but I'll definitely pick up a copy soon. Sounds invaluable for my Belgians

  2. This book is going to cost me a lot of money. I want to do Germans, British and French, and there are so many support options.
