From the Publisher:
Vikings - Raiding, Warfare, & Empire in the Dark Ages: Vikings are remembered today as ferocious warriors who wreaked havoc in Europe and the British Isles. The true story is far more complex, as they were an integral part of the emerging European Middle Ages.
- None Died Better - Last Stand at Isandlwana 22 January 1879: The Battle of Isandlwana stands as one of the worst defeats of a European army by an indigenous force.
- No Man's Child - Britain's Mesopotamian Campaign 1914-1918: Analysis of Britain’s Mesopotamian Campaign during World War I.
- Battles in the Swamp - Gully Hole Creek & Bloody Marsh: In 1742, Spanish forces invaded the British-held island of St. Simons in Georgia. Two battles there would halt the Spanish invasion and secure Britain’s southern colonies.
Last Stand at Isandlwana, 22 January 1879 is a two-player tactical wargame of low-intermediate complexity simulating the last 90 to 240 minutes of that infamous and legendary battle of the Anglo-Zulu War. The Zulu player is on the offensive, attempting to wipe out the entire British force on the map as quickly as possible. The British is attempting to win by having some remnant hold out longer than occurred historically or, alternatively, by having some portion of his command escape off the map and get back to relative safety at Roarke’s drift. Solitaire-play is easily doable. Each game turn of Last Stand is equal to five to 20 minutes of “real time,” depending on the tempo of action in each turn. Each hexagon on the 22/34” map represents 217 yards (200 meters) from side to opposite side. There are 176 5/8” counters with each British unit-counter representing a company or a “detachment” of infantry. On the Zulu side, they individual units each represent temporary battlefield agglomerations of the about 100 to 200 warriors.
