Description Edit | History

From the publisher

Ready the Cannon, Fix Bayonets, and Prepare to Charge!

Civil War is now upon us, and you must take the field as the leader of the Union or the Confederate forces. Command your generals and direct your infantry, cavalry, and artillery in 30 different scenarios that feature the terrain and troop deployment of each historical battle—from the First Bull Run and Wilson’s Creek to Prairie Grove and Gettysburg.

History may have been written, but in Battle Cry, the outcome of each battle is up to you. With your strategy and tactics, you can turn the tide to carry Old Glory or Dixie to victory.

Includes 30 Battle Scenarios!

This is an expanded and updated version of Battle Cry.

2 Pocket Battle Cry
NOT a version of Battle Cry that fits in your pocket, but... ...a detailed ruleset for the combination of POCKET BATTLES Civil War armies with maps and movement from Richard Borg's BATTLE CRY. Notes, feedback, and testing very welcome. Requires both POCKET BATTLES: UNION VS. CONFEDERACY and BATTLE CRY to play, and is recommended for players familiar with both.

I do not own rights to either of these games. These rules written without intent of profit or copyright infringement, created solely out of respect and admiration for these two great games.
