Making entertaining scenarios from historically one-sided battles is a challenge. Nashville is a good example. Hood's Confederate army was emphatically crushed. The brutal military arithmetic is such that in any historically accurate recreation of the battle, the only question will be over the rapidity and completeness of its crushing.

Still, we reckon we have turned it into a scenario that the Confederates can 'win' in game terms (by preserving enough of their units, and hanging onto enough of their positions to have a chance of withdrawing in some sort of order).

There's an AAR of one of our playtests here:


And the full scenario is online in Flickr here:
