The game's French inventor, Hermance Edan, was clearly pleased enough with early sales to publish an edition aimed at the U.S. market. It kept the same French soldiers as the original, but replaced the British troops with American ones.
It also replaced the fine pebbled-metal backs of the first-edition pieces with cheaper ridged tin ones, and used a plainer cardboard for the box as well.
However, Mlle. Edan does not seem to have had much success with this very rare edition, as she sold the international English-language rights to Britain's H.P. Gibson & Sons in 1916.
