Like many this was part of my introduction to wargames. Picked it up during my family's annual pilgrimage to Montreal and spent many a rainy day assaulting the beaches of Normandy, the blue skies of the Pacific, or the frozen tundra in the USSR. Rated largely out of nostalgia, but I still have my copy in storage and expect to play with my kids one day.

My first true game, acquired in elementary school. Still possible to find copies from used book sellers. Great introduction to Second World War history and a nice introduction to wargaming with four clever little games that actually have a nice array of game mechanics. Well worth a look for youngsters.

Una verdadera joya de coleccionista el "Battlegame Book", 35 años de su publicación y su jugabilidad siendo siendo muy alta. Probablemente este de la Segunda Guerra Mundial es de lo mejor de la serie. La Guerra de Invierno (igualado y vibrante, aunque con ligera ventaja de los soviéticos) o Cabeza de Playa están en un lugar destacado entre los mitos de estos minijuegos. Si algún día tiene oportunidad de adquirirlo, no se lo piense, son de esos juegos que perdurarán por varias generaciones.

Youthful memories. Actually, I can only really remember Winter War (with the German tanks) and Beachhead (with the British funnies).

Good introductory wargames for young people; sadly today we can't find nothing similar. The whole series brings nostalgic reminds, but the one-page rules could have been better. Beach-Head is perhaps the best game in this book. I still remember the epic duels between the destroyer and the coastal artillery...
For Winter War, I suggest to apply a house rule: the attacker is not affected by adverse results in the Attack Chart if the attacking unit is beyond the defender's attack range.
