1 - 2 weeks availability
The War in the East, a supplement for John Hill's Across a Deadly Field, gives players the resources to recreate the battles, great and small, of the Eastern Theater of the Civil War. Step into the shoes of Robert E. Lee and drive towards Washington with the Army of Northern Virginia, or take command of the Army of the Potomac, and attempt to capture Richmond. With scenarios, including an optional mini-campaign for the first day of Gettysburg, and special rules that enhance gameplay, this volume offers players, whether Union or Confederate, a versatility that can accommodate their preferences and miniatures collections without sacrificing either playability or historical accuracy.
In the field of tactical wargame designs, few designers have had as much impact as John Hill. In the 1970s, John started his own company to design and publish tactical and operational games that broke from traditional wargame mechanics. Realizing that he preferred designing wargames over running a business, John sold the company and became a freelance wargame designer. From then on, John's designs for Avalon Hill, SPI, SDC and others became noted for their innovative approaches to simulating unique tactical situations. In 1977, John designed Squad Leader for Avalon Hill. Squad Leader broke the mold for how tactical combat was portrayed on the gaming board, and its impact is still felt today. The first freelance wargame designer inducted into the Origins Hall of Fame, John is perhaps best known for his Johnny Reb rules for the American Civil War.
