I agree this is an excellent piece of work. Just wish there were more for each book. Just helps getting a feel or flavour for each book so to say. It got me hooked on Overlord but not sure Tobruk will give me the same feeling of play. So here is hoping for more!

Reading this was the moment that I realized that Battlegroup offered what I was looking for, but not finding in rule sets like Bolt Action and Flames of War. I suspect it has helped to sell many more books than the ones I've bought. So thank you! :grin:

It was written as general intro to game and its mechanics, using Overlord as that was the latest book and popular period/theatre. There have been battle reports posted, by Piers and I, on all the books so far. Try my blog, or the BG fb page.

Warwik, I visit your Blog frequently, the only regret is that your OOB are sometimes lacking détails .

Last one, KOenigsberg for exemple, we have the full détails of the Russian OOB, BR and moral included (which is great) and a rough descritpion of the germans in front..
Too bad,
but still carry on i loooove your AAR.
