Battleground Blitzkrieg now read

I am very pleased with my purchase. Nice overview of the Polish and French campaigns with lots of great photos. The Germans get army lists for both Poland and France which I thought was a good idea. The new special rules look interesting and seem very simple to add period flavour to games. The best sections for me were the scenarios. I particularly liked the fact they used small forces as I don't have large Blitzkrieg era collection, and no French or Poles. One Polish scenario caught my eye which needed just 3 or so tanks. One of the French scenarios would need just 30 odd figures. I think these small scenarios are great to start off collecting a force so that you can play them. Unlike the other books there wasn't a large scenario which is a shame but then size is subjective.

Now which force to start collecting first...
