Battleline Publications

Battleline Publications

Battleline Publications was a board wargame company founded by Steven Peek in 1973. Output was relatively low at first, with each game being funded by sales of the one before, but their games were generally well-respected. ["A Slice of Battleline Publications", Jack Greene, Jr., "Panzerfaust" No. 68 (July-August 1975)] Several were re-published by Avalon Hill, and their second game, "Wooden Ships and Iron Men" designed by S. Craig Taylor is still considered one of the better games on its subject. They also put out a couple games that can be considered card wargames, and at one point became a division of Heritage Models.
