Butkovich picks a wide variety of scenarios from the possible list, including skirmishes and a cavalry action but also giving users some of the major actions of the major battles of the campaign, including Resaca and Kennesaw Mountain. If you’re a miniature war gamer using any rules set and any basing model, you’ll find that this scenario book works for you with very little conversion needed. Anyone interested in the Atlanta Campaign, even non-war gamers, will find value in this book."
