Santa Anna Rules: Warfare in Mexico: 1820-1870

Watermarked PDF

Santa Anna Tactical (SAT) is Buck Surdu’s tactical system for larger battles. This volume contains orders of battle and background information on the Mexican-American War and the Maximillian Adventure. In addition, this volume includes scenarios for all the major battles of the Mexican American War, San Jacinto, and Puebla. Volume I includes several special mechanics to bring out the peculiarities of this locality and era. It is designed to accurately portray the feel of battle in the “Santa Anna era” with each player controlling a brigade. While warfare of this period is Napoleonic-like, the Mexican-American War and the War of Texas Independence are neither Napoleonic Wars nor like the American Civil War. Santa Anna Tactical Rules captures the aspects of these wars that are unique. In addition, this new reprinting of Santa Anna Tactical includes a supplement about the South American Wars of Liberation and a scenario for the battle of Maipu by Mark Ryan.

I don’t think so. I don’t have the electrons to create a PDF. I will check with Pete Panzeri, the south or of volume 2.

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.
