A helpful review- on both the good and bad points of the book.
This goes a long way to actually helping me decide whether I want to purchase this now or wait till the newer, corrected version comes out. I'm on the path towards the latter now. The editing mistakes, in the wake of Age of Dreadnoughts
, sound heartbreaking.
On the upside, the MAS boats and very detailed campaign rules make this a 'must eventually get' book. The signal flag rules sound interesting, but only in the abstract. I mean, if we accurately simulated the difficulties of ship-to-ship communication during the pre-radio days it would be hard enough to keep a good formation, much less conduct successful combat actions.
