It looks like this is in the queue - https://www.gmtgames.com/p-597-simple-great-battles-of-histo...

I am not sure what the differences are between this and the previous version. Can anyone shed any light on what has changed?

Some of the chart details and few of the procedures to simplify matters and speed play mostly in the Shock and Missile fire areas; plus the usual dusting and cleaning, errata correction, etc.

The link you posted contains a pretty good description of some of the changes. The click bait has color on everything shown. The color upgrade alone has pushed this one to #1 on my "most Wanted" list.

Now that this is out and in people's hands (still waiting for my copy to arrive in Australia) - how do people find the 2nd edition? Does it play that differently? Any likes or dislikes about the new version?

I think it's excellent - it's been such a long time since I've played the 1st Edition, I've merely re-learned the system via the 2nd Edition rules.

For example, the momentum (movement) bonus (+1) for attackers is gone, having been factored into the Weapons Matrix.

Things are streamlined (for example, there are no reduced sides anymore - use the back for units out-of-command) and the system still plays fast.

Complexity (medium, not simple) is still the same.

Things are now in color, too.

Overall, a terrific package and phenomenal value!
