Generistan. Part1. Middle Asia of 19th century.

Watermarked PDF

Imagine yourself as the Emir or Khan of a small imaginary kingdom in Central Asia in the second half of the 19th century. You have to pacify the rebellions and repel the raids of neighboring nomadic tribes. At the same time, European countries dream of subordinating you to their policies in the Great Game.

Like many of the Eastern armies, your army combines regular infantry and large cavalry from nomadic tribes. Regular foot soldiers like the Janissaries or Sipay are called Sarbaz and wear a "European" uniform over the traditional Asian robe. The bodyguards are dressed and armed in Asian style.

You have numerous cavalry from representatives of different tribes of the Middle East: Uzbeks, Kirghiz, Turkmens. Some of them are depicted armed with traditional weapons.

Turkmen are depicted with guns 1870-1900. They can be not only cavalry, but also "dragoons" - mounted skirmishers.

The author of the drawings is inspired by rules like "The man who would be the king". We hope this album will delight fans of this game and many other games too.

File Size:
2.67 MB
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.
