Why is this rulebook so expensive???

High production quality.

It must be. I've read that it's quite lavish looking.

It is indeed lavishly illustrated, so much eye candy to go along with an excellent rule set. I never get tired of fingering through it. It is worth every penny.

Where can someone buy a copy?

In the UK Caliver Books, in the U.S. OMM.
Not sure about OMM but Caliver sells the GdeB scenario books, which are superb for those who do not wish to research the battles with OOB etc.

You might check the General de Brigade forum to see if you can buy a used version as some players graduated to the new General d'Armee (not me though I prefer GdeB).

Here's a link to all OMM results matching "General de Brigade". I see 7 scenario books for GdB in the list.

Hi Sevastopol – you might also consider GdA which is the next iteration of Dave Brown's Napoleonic rules. It plays slightly quicker and will allow for larger battles. Both are excellent.

GdA can be bought from the TooFatLardies site.

Hi Sevastopol,

Not an expensive rule set considering what a gem it is.

Beautifully presented and bound in hard-covers!
