“Troops, Weapons & Tactics are no walk in the park, they are a gritty representation of WWII combat that really make you think like a WWII commander. Mistakes cost you dear, but good tactics pay huge dividends. This is gaming for big boys.” Ray Peterson, former Airborne Platoon Commander

Troops, Weapons & Tactics is a Platoon level game set in World War II with the rifle section or squad being the lowest command element, and the fire team the smallest tactical unit. As well as rules it contains full details on the tactics and formations used by the major participants in WWII and systems for generating scenarios and forces for your table-top games.

There are numerous scenarios for TW&T in various Summer and Christmas Specials.
