“THE WORLD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN” American War of Independence Battlefield Rules & Campaign System



American War of Independence Battlefield Rules & Campaign System

The War for the American Colonies is a fascinating mix of political and military interaction. The strategy of the war is randomised by the orders the British receive each fall, such as Cut-Off New England, Southern Expedition, Occupy coastal locations etc. Thus the frustration of a constantly changing strategic policy with ever fewer troops and a rising French intervention makes for a very challenging campaign system. It is not easy for the Americans either as they have to commit a lot of their operational activity raising troops, collecting supplies and trying to rid themselves of their more incompetent generals. The battlefield rules have a battlefield generator system depending upon where the battle is fought and has a novel non-tape measure means of showing movement to the key battlefield locations.

Contents: There is a 57 page Game Handbook with full Battlefield and Campaign rules.  There are Two A3 (or 4 A4) colour maps, 2 A4 pages of Campaign & Battlefield game counters, 3 A4 of battlefield Fate Cards, A4 Operational Chart, A4 Victory Points Chart, 2 x A4 Army Strength Charts and 2 x A4 Playsheets.

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.
