"THE TROOPS HAVE BEEN DEPLOYED.  YOUR ORDERS, SIR?"   Drums & Shakos Large Battles is a set of miniatures rules for large napoleonic battles. Each player controls a Division of two or three Brigades.   Designed to be played in less than three hours, its mechanics force participants to make tactical choices. Drums & Shakos Large Battles rewards good management of reserves, right deployment of artillery, and historical use of cavalry.   Maneuver your Battalions and Regiments, react to your opponent's actions, and launch the final attack at the right moment! Victory lies only a few steps away...   Innovative mechanics detail the approach and contact phases of combat.   Easy measuring system, very limited use of counters and markers, no bookkeeping.   Clear victory conditions, based on losses and penetration into enemy territory.   The rules allow for reactions in the opponent's turn: no player is ever truly inactive.   Four Scenarios included.   Appendix: playing at Corps or Army level.    Playable in any scale, 6 to 28 mm.   Divisional army lists for major powers (Austria, France, Britain, Prussia, Russia, and Spain).   Simple guidelines to refight historical battles.

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.
