battle of shiloh This Blood Field:
Regimental Wargame Scenarios
For the Battle of Shiloh

     The Battle of Shiloh was the first truly large battle in the American Civil Warís western theatre, and the largest until Chickamauga the next year. With largely inexperienced troops, the two sides faced each other and knocked each other around until one withdrew from sheer exhaustion. Try your hand at the gaming table and manage the chaos of untried and untested combat troops thrown together and pitted against each other in a fight to the death along the Tennessee River!

     These scenarios are designed to be used with almost any American Civil War regimental level set of rules.  Rules are included for figures based on 20, 30, 40, 50, and 100 historic men per figure/stand.  Times are given for 10, 15, and 20 minutes per game turn.  Maps are in full color, as are the numerous color photographs of the modern battlefield.

Available at Amazon.com and Wargame Vault.
