Naval Wargames on a Grid
I recently acquired a copy of Barry Carter's Naval Wargames WW1 and WW2 published in 1975 by David and Charles. The book is in superb condition and covers many aspects of naval wargaming over the period in question including the use of air power, submarines and the all important campaign system. Another big attraction is that the rules are designed to work on a squared grid. At first reading there are so many ideas I would like to use for my own purposes that it has presented me with quite a quandary in respect of my aforementioned gridded WW1 version of DBSA. Whilst it is not quite a case of back to the drawing board with the set I am working on (or, dare I say, back to square 1) it will force me to change a few things.
