Brothers at War


Brothers at War is wargame system to land battles in the American Civil War (ACW) on 6mm to 20mm scale. The basic fighting unit is a company or a battery of artilley. These are grouped into divisions. Turns are performed by alternate activation of divisions, with the quality of the commanders determining some issues. Basic unit types are; infantry, cavalry, artillery and special units (General, Officer, Banner, Skirmisher). Points system for units and army lists for points based games. The army lists can be used to convert historical orders of battle, into lists for games.

The objective is to provide an easy, agile and adaptable rules system for the simulation of combat in the American Civil War. The definitions of range of weapons were based on historical sources and serious publications, in particular the book “Small Arms at Gettysburg”, by Joseph G. Bilby. Likewise, the rules for combat formations and for the historical characteristics of each army were also the target of research in specialized bibliography on the subject.

Important - There are two files to download. The BAW (Brothers at War 2) file is a corrected and updated version of the game. Opt for it.

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.
