Note: This company was the direct forerunner of Avalon Hill.
this company published the board game Tactics and later became Avalon Hill
this company IS NOT the same as entry Avalon Games
Further Note: In 1952, Charles Swann Roberts had the first 2,000 copies of TACTICS printed and paid for by himself, and sold them through his company, Stackpole Books. Then he created Avalon Hill, who printed more copies of TACTICS. I don't think that the box cover shown above is the original, it's the Avalon Hill 2nd edition of 1953 or 1954.
