Paperback Summary:
An atlas with maps of Naval and Marine engagements from Day One up to the end of Desert Storm. Parts I (The American Revolution 1775-1783), II (The Age of Sail 1783-1812) and III (The War of 1812, 1812-1815) are the only sections that fully concern this game, but the first three maps of Part IV (Pirates, Explorers, and War with Mexico 1815-1860) will have interest to fans of the Barbary Wars and the last days of piracy. Our Axis & Allies War at Sea alumni will also appreciate the coverage of that conflict. Looks to me like a potentially valuable scenario-design tool for those who want to do American Revolution, Barbary Pirates or War of 1812 games.

Rating: Usually, I only have two ratings I give things-- Would Buy/Buy Again or Would Not Buy/Buy Again. This one is something I just happened to see on the library's shelves near the table I was parked at waiting for a study-room to open up today, so I grabbed it and gave it a read, but I WILL be acquiring a copy for my own library ASAP.
