Description:

This set of rules began as a simple project to tinker with another well known game in order to modify it into a suitable set of fast play rules for the musket era.  However, it soon became apparent that this attempt to tinker would not work. The musket era required that certain factors be taken into account such as fire power, unit degradation from casualties, and command.  Therefore this is a very different game from the original model.

In ancient battle recreations, Fire Power can often be relegated to insignificance in light of historical reality.  Firepower was rarely seen to dramatically affect the outcome of a battle as few "ballistic weapons" did much more than harass and annoy the enemy, and perhaps slow down the impetus of a charge.  However, the musket became the great equalizer.  If your troops would fire, the enemy would incur casualties, regardless of whether your troops were the better trained or the more experienced.  The effect of a thousand poorly trained, ill commanded troops firing into a block of men should not be ignored.  Therefore a simple system was developed to account for a unit suffering losses.

In ancient battles the general is more important in combat, but in modern battles the chain of command is more important.  C'est la Guerre uses a simple command structure to manage battlefield movement.

In addition we have added troop grading so that better trained more effective troops can have an advantage, and poorly trained less effective troops are at a disadvantage.

C'est la Guerre attempts to account for casualties and losses without going into an overly complicated accounting system, and provides for a command structure without dealing with morale or having the players issue orders.  However, be warned:  C'est la Guerre is an abstraction.  A base in the game does not necessarily equal a particular unit type or formation on the field.  Each base is a representation of force, and as such, issues such as the size of one battalion or squadron should be set aside.  The player should concern himself with tactics such as troop placement, command access, gun placement and terrain features.  The goal was to recreate the "feel" of the period, not necessarily every detail of the period.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
