Donald Featherstone's Tank Battles in Miniature provides an authoritative guide to the momentous battles between Rommel's Afrika Korps and the 8th Army, together with numerous suggestions as to how these events can be reproduced realistically on the table top as wargames. The Western Desert campaign contained many unique features which render it especially suitable for wargaming. A war of movement and material, with infantry playing a secondary role to the tanks which roamed at will over the empty wastes. These factors are well brought out in this book, which is aimed at giving the wargamer insight into the human problems of mechanized warfare under desert conditions.

Chapters include:

  • a summary of the actual campaign
  • technical specifications for vehicles, tanks, guns and aircraft, terrain
  • communications
  • visibility and navigation
  • firing tank and anti-tank guns
  • 'brewing-up'
  • air operations
  • the Long Range Desert Group
  • minefields and supply
