Divisional Commander

Watermarked PDF

The huge influence of Napoleonic combat systems, tactics and weaponry (the flintlock musket was the standard weapon for all Armies until the later 1840’s), meant that they remained the standard throughout the world until the full development of the rifled musket. This weapon, which used percussion caps rather than a spark from a flint, together with rifled artillery changed tactics and formations, and ended the Napoleonic Era.

Divisional Commander (DC) is a set of Napoleonic rules to cover the whole Napoleonic era, including the British-American War of 1812, the “forgotten” Wars of Liberation in South America, and the last War of the Napoleonic Era - the 1st Carlist War.

The rules are designed to play battles of this period of medium size, involving a division, or a small corps. DC is designed to allow players to represent historical battles or to play balanced games based on a point system that allows them to play fictional scenarios and to run campaigns or championships.

To represent the intense movements and counter movements of the formations in Napoleonic battles,  DC (as other Capitan Games rules) uses a system that allows more flexibility in the game rather than an “I go, you go” system.

With the order system and the obligation to choose between different options for units, DC represents the fog of war and the uncertain control a commander has over his troops and his subordinate generals.

Included: Rules, Cover & Back Cover in High Resolution, Tokens & QRS, Napoleonic Army Lists, 1st Carlist War  Rules & Carlist Army Lists

Original electronic
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.
