Death Valley: Battles for the Shenandoah
Publisher/Brand: GMT Games
Product Code: GMT1909
This series is one of the hobby’s longest-lived design concepts, springing from the legendary regimental level Gettysburg game — Terrible Swift Sword (SPI) — designed by Richard Berg in 1976. Under GMT, the rule's system has remained stable, but has shown remarkable flexibility to allow each game to smoothly incorporate additional rules to reflect the historical battles. The series relies on interactive chit-pull mechanics to simulate the often chaotic nature of the 19th Century battlefield at the regimental level.
Death Valley: Battles for the Shenandoah contains eight battle games with multiple scenarios. They range from division level contests on half sized maps to two map battles between armies. Experienced players will be able to play many of the scenarios in one sitting. The rules compare the development of the cavalry, and the changes in infantry and artillery organization and tactics in 1862 and 1864.
