Playing Leapfrog -Corps Level Battles on the Western Front


The game covers the trench war on the Western Front from 1915 to 1918 from the viewpoint of the many British offensives that took place. The British team of 1 corps commander and from 2 to 5 divisional commanders select their plan of attack in a pre-game sequence of defining the frontage of attack and how to use the available artillery assets as well as gas and mines. The Germans options are largely defined by their doctrine of counter-attack and availability of reinforcements and are done by the British players in sectors that do not involve their division.  

Depending on the success or failure of the attack players may be sacked and a divisional commander might leapfrog his corps commander to become the new corps commander!

There is also a system for fighting one-off battles at six periods in the war.

Content: Game Handbook with rules for setting up the battlefield, objectives, frontages and assets. There follows the rules on how to fight the battle with many examples of pay.

Also included are 6 Campaign Cards, Battlefield zone markers, Flow Charts on setting up the game and working out Victory and Defeat, Prestige Point Counters, 2-page Playsheet and Table of Organisation for the British & French Divisions.

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.
