With games like Objective Shreveport! and Hood's Last Gamble, designer John Theissen has found a unique, accessible, streamlined approach to games of operational maneuver. With Campaign of Nations, he turns his attention to the Napoleonic era, and specifically to the dramatic and turbulent 1813 Leipzig campaign. Waterloo might get the attention and the catchy pop song, but it was Leipzig that saw the emperor encircled, defeated, and forced to abdicate.

These are far larger, grander armies than those that marched across your plexi in Mr. Theissen's ACW games. New Zone of Control rules appropriate for this scale make it more difficult to slip by the enemy. Just before being attacked, defenders in multiple hexes may attempt to concentrate forces, leading to dramatic swings in fortune. These and other rules support a tense board situation in which the French player, occupying a central position, must contend with enemy armies marching in from all directions. Will Napoleon defeat each one in detail, or will they be able to tighten the noose?

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.
