    • An interesting generic orc and goblin book, dosent focus on one particular table top wargaming rule setncentrates on orcs by regions eg, forest, mountain, sea and many others.goblins are refered to as smaller orcs not as a separate race.Only for die hard orc players/fan.Could be useful for authors and GM's as an aid to writing.It contains some very nice artworkEE FROM NET GALLERY. anyone who plays tabletop wargames will interested in this. Any of my GR friends who play let me know please.


    • Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley. Pramas has a point. Orcs do get a bit of a bad rap. Honestly, where would a great many fantasy novels be without them? No where really interesting. Orc Warfare attempts to remedy this misunderstanding by presenting Orcs in a more tactical light. It is Osprey after all. Books like these seem to me, to be an excellent idea. Taking a fantasy creature (or a straight out fantasy) and presenting using terms and ideas that used in the real world. In a book detailing made [...]


    • This is a nice quick one that reads more like a character breakdown for an entire race than a book with a plot and structure but I must say for the very first time I am tempted to be an orc next time I pick up Skyrim or a game where it gives me that opportunity. It has elements of the Art of War in terms of tactics, troop deployment and weaponary and I picked it up because it sort of reminded me of the game Dynasty Warriors. I was interested to see how an entire battle of Orcs may work especiall [...]


    • 'Orc Warfare' by Chris Pramas is strategy guide written to understand orcs and how they fight. Sure they are fictional, but you never know when something like this might come in handy, right?The book is broken into four sections. You'll learn about types of orcs, types of orc troops, orc strategies and tactics, and some sample orc victories. Orcs are not pretty, and neither are their tactics. They are dirty fighters and chaotic. They are also not afraid to eat their own. The description of orc t [...]


    • eARC review2.5 stars (3 for objectivity considering that I'm maybe not quite the perfect audience in retrospect)This was a fun novelty fantasy military strategy read. Despite the small page count, for those not totally into the world of Lord of the Rings, Dungeons & Dragons, World of Warcraft, War Hammer, etcter a while the novelty wears off and this does get a little monotonous.Reading about all the different types of orc was fun though the list does go on and on Thorough or tedious? You de [...]


    • This a a great book for some that like fan fiction that tolkien like but not canon. it also great from someone writing a tolkien like story for ideas. I like the second cavalry types other than the giant wolf/worg. I hope he makes a stand alone Goblin warfare book and wish he use the WoW version of trolls. I have purchased the Dwarf warfare book and plan to buy the Elf warfare book as soon as it is release. Beside the stand alone Goblin book I'd like to see books on Centaurs and Gnomes. Repostin [...]


    • A book along the lines of the Osprey series of military campaign books. If you are interested in running a traditional fantasy campaign for your roleplaying game this is a quick easy read to give you some nice ideas to flesh out the Orcs of your world. The author has an efficient way of writing the more anthropological portions of the book while still being able to turn out enjoyable anecdotes to go along as examples of the behaviors discussed.


    • Brought to you by Osprey - the same publisher that brings you military books on historical units, aircraft and vehicles, Orc Warfare brings a version of orc armies. There are examinations of different types of orcs (they include goblins as a sub-type of orc), their fighting styles and then fictional battles against various opponents. If you need info for a fantasy book or RPG, this could be helpful in jump-starting your imagination.


    • For those looking for more background on Orcs, this is the book to read. Pramas provides a wealth of information perfect for someone looking to RP with or around Orcs or for someone looking to write fantasy with Orcs as part of the story. The writing is simple easy and quick to read making it a great resource. I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review.


    • ExcellentTruly great book fun to read by the fact that it was so serious felt like it was a description of real wars
