Is the Victory at Sea Rulebook Worth Buying?

Like many people who bought the Victory at Sea starter box from Warlord games, I was surprised when I saw the thin rules booklet included in the game. The starter box for Black Seas, another recent game from Warlord, came with a decent-sized 90 page rulebook and the rulebook included in the starter box for SPQR (another Warlord game) was twice that size! When Warlord announced that the actual full rulebook would be released seperately at a later date (for £40, no less), there was plenty of grumbling from fans. Though I was disappointed as well, I eventually ordered a copy for myself. Below I have written short flipthrough of the book with descriptions of each section. If you would like to read my overall thoughts about the book, feel free to skip to the end of the article.
