This book introduces Volume IV of Partizan Press' Universal Wargames rules supplements. Written to fit within historical rules systems currently popular in the wargaming community, this book introduces the later 18th Century and Napoleonic Ottoman armies. Including scenarios and campaign options for an Ottoman army against other Ottomans, or Russian, Austrian, French and British armies, representing any of the major conflicts from the 1780s, and well into 1812-14.

Wargaming with a later 18th Century or Napoleonic period Ottoman army presents some challenges, as the Ottomans did not follow many of the military conventions of the period. This book covers organization, tactics and rules modifications intended to showcase the Ottoman's warfighting style. The organization and fighting concepts employed by the Ottomans were developed based on an ethos of individual martial prowess and expertise in the use of the sword – the formidable scimitars. The nature of Ottoman warfare led to specialized tactics developed by the Austrians, Russians and French, tailored to fighting the Ottomans.

The book includes an end-section listing a selection of 25-28mm scale metal, resin and hard-plastic Ottoman figures and accessories that could be used to develop a wargaming army for the later 18th Century and Napoleonic period.
