Little Wars by H.G. Wells

Little Wars

by H.G. Wells

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
1 Hr. 44 Min.


A Game for Boys from twelve years of age to one hundred and fifty and for that more intelligent sort of girl who likes boys' games and books. With an Appendix on Kriegspiel

Miniature wargaming got its start with the publication in 1913 of this thoroughly entertaining little account of how H.G. Wells, with certain of his friends, took their childhood toys and turned play into acceptable middle-aged sport by subjecting the exercise to the civilizing influence of actual rules.

While wargaming progressed far past these beginnings, Wells observes how little wars" with even his elementary rules can suggest the wholesale crudity of the real thing.
