Cool little story, not necessarily one of my favorites but it's still a good read. It reminded me of a 90's movie where toys came to life and terrorized a family and some stranded motorists. I wonder which came out first? If you like King then you'll like this story.

I read this book in a small little magazine that was given out to 6th-graders. It was 1976. I loved it so much! It started me down the path of reading Stephen King books - a path that has both entertained and terrified me for much of my life.

Keep moving. Nothing to see here. Go to the next book please. This could've been written by anybody. But for the better than average writing style, this could've been a story written by a 7th grader.

It was entertaining enough.

"Battleground tells the story of a man being attacked by the small green soldiers that used to be the height of childhood play, the same little guys brought to life in the aforementioned Toy Story (with a little help from a Baby-Monitor)."
