The American Civil War was a turning point in the history of warfare, as Napoleonic tactics met deadly new technology. Cannons and rifles had become more accurate at longer ranges, rapid-fire pistols gave cavalry a new weapon, and the telegraph and railroad completely altered both strategic and tactical thinking. Across a Deadly Field, the new regimental-level wargame from Osprey Publishing, allows players to recreate this tumultuous period of warfare on the tabletop. Its versatile rules make it possible to refight any battle, from the early skirmishes of Ball's Bluff and Big Bethel to the grand, set-piece battles such as Gettysburg that decided the war. Written by John Hill, designer of the Johnny Reb series, Across a Deadly Field offers both new and experienced wargamers a fast-paced and dynamic game where even a single regiment can make the difference between victory and defeat.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"In the field of tactical wargame designs, few designers have had as much impact as John Hill. His Squad Leader broke the mold for how tactical combat is portrayed on the gaming board. And his Johnny Reb seta standard for Civil War gaming. Now with Across a Deadly Field, Hill makes it possible for large scale Civil War games to be played out in a relatively small space, using existing Johnny Reb figures." --Bring Your A-Game

"Now tabletop wargamers can re-create this perilous period...Its versatile, regimental-level rules make it possible to refight any clash with military miniatures in various scales, from early skirmishes at Ball's Bluff and Big Bethel to monumental and decisive set-piece battles like Gettysburg. This 144-page, hardcover book was penned by American John Hill, designer of the 'Johnny Reb' series and a member of the Wargaming Hall of Fame. Whether a would-be general is a beginner or a veteran, Across a Deadly Field facilitates fast-paced and action-packed wargaming 'where even a single regiment can make the difference between victory and defeat.'" --Toy Soldier & Model Figure Magazine
