    One thought on “Achtung Schweinehund!: A Boy's Own Story of Imaginary Combat”

    1. First, I preface this review by noting that I understand all too clearly the seriousness of real warfare and the difference between the entertainment value of war games and the devastation of the actual thing (as does this author.) With that said, for me this book is a sentimental visit to my youth, as well as being seriously funny. The author and I are about the same age, and when I was growing up I also became fascinated with military history and war games played with miniatures; mine weren't [...]

    2. n the end my parents only have themselves to blame. I guess I had just turned 12 years old when we visited the Museum of Amsterdam History where I walked into an exhibition of flat toy soldiers. This was way more interesting than the plastic soldiers that went AWOL at alarming rates in our back garden!My father traced the source of the miniatures back to a shop in The Hague, the Boutique de la Grande Armée, named after Napoleon's awesome instrument of power. We went there a few weeks later and [...]

    3. This was a surprisingly fun read from an authour that is new for me. If you're a geek, I think you'll love Pearson's confessional tone. If you're not a geek, consider this autobiographical journey as a sort of National Geographic guide to the exotic world of wargamming.

    4. Another excellent book by Harry Pearson. Full of laughs as he confesses about his wargaming hobby and tries to convince us he is neither a nerd or a geek!

    5. A rousing tale of tin soldiersIf you've ever painted a 28mm soldier or a 1/72 tank, this book is for you. A very personal story of growing up with the miniature wargaming hobby, but one that many gamers can relate to. A thoroughly enjoyable romp through the history of wargaming and how it relates to life. Recommended.

    6. The book is a personal and funny account of growing up in 1960s and 70s England, surrounded by relatives who'd served in the World Wars and reading Commando comics, playing with toy guns, making military models and other war-like pursuits (he's at pains to stress that these are all imaginary and that neither these games or his later interests glorify or detract from the terrible realities of war). On the way he branches off into the history of the manufacture of toy soldiers, Airfix and Action M [...]

    7. Ok firstly, this is ONLY 3 STARS if you are not involved in the subject matter, which is collecting wargaming miniatures (and sometimes playing the games they were made for). But if this is a hobby of yours, you'll empathize with much of what the author speaks of, and laugh as you find that you've had similar situations/thoughts. Only one thing that stands out that kind of rankled me and it is very minor. At one point in the book, Harry says that there was a difference between growing up in Brit [...]

    8. A book of two halves.As soon as I read the first page, I knew I would enjoy this book. From the beginning, the author regales us with witty anecdotes and nostalgia-rich observations about life growing up in post-war Britain, and the hobbies and games we play. An autobiography about somebody you don't know would be dull, but the collection of funny stories are well-told as if your friend were telling you, adding those extra details that aren't really connected with the story, but give colour and [...]

    9. The book provides an interesting background on the history of plastic and metal historical figures and models. Mr. Pearson is definitely of the historical tabletop wargaming variety. He expresses extreme dislike for fantasy and science fiction gaming. I certainly saw some of myself in his writing and he brings up some interesting points about the hobby, I do not see eye to eye on all accounts. Amusing annecdotes, but at times he assume that you are versant in English culture of the 1970s nor doe [...]

    10. Awesome - one of those books you read and end up smiling and nodding while doing so, because it's so familiar to you.
