The Road to Halle: Expansion Kit II for Napoleon's Last Gamble Adds one 22 x 34-inch map (WX) to the battlefield area that will extend the area from Brussels to west of Hal, overlapping the (N) and (NX) maps. Also includes a four-page study folder with three scenarios: Expanded Waterloo Scenario: June 18th. Allows Napoleon the option of flanking the Mont St. Jean position at the risk of freeing up the 17,000-man Hal force; The Fields of Hal Scenario: June 17th-18th: Hypothetical battle in the Hal environs. Wellington believed that this area was the most likely location for the culminating battle, rather than Mont St. Jean; and Extended Campaign Scenario: June 15th-19th: Provides Napoleon and Wellington more operational options, with more areas to defend, more room for maneuver (and for error). In addition, several Turn Record Charts and Anglo-Allied Setup Cards will be provided to account for the added map and associated arrival times on the WX map. No additional counters will be needed. $25.00 USD

Attack at Daylight and Whip Them: The Battle of Shiloh – April 6-7, 1862 cover

Attack at Daylight and Whip Them: The Battle of Shiloh – April 6-7, 1862 The Confederate plan on the morning of April 6, 1862, was to attack at daylight and beat the unsuspecting Union Army of the Tennessee. A brutal day of fighting ensued, unprecedented in its horror – the devil's own day, one union officer admitted. Confederates needed just one final push. Grant did not sit and wait for that assault, though. He gathered reinforcements and planned a counteroffensive. On the morning of April 7, he intended to attack at daylight and whip them. The bloodshed that resulted from the two-day battle exceeded anything America had ever known in its history. $15.00 USD

The Most Desperate Acts of Gallantry: George A. Custer in the Civil War Covers George Armstrong Custer's battles in the American Civil War. He served as a staff officer through the early stages of the war. His star began to rise in late June, 1863, when he catapulted several grades to brigadier general and was given brigade command. Shortly thereafter, at Gettysburg and Buckland Mills, he led his men – the Wolverines – in some of the heaviest cavalry fighting of the Eastern Theater. At Yellow Tavern, Custer's assault broke the enemy line, and one of his troopers mortally wounded the legendary Confederate cavalryman, J.E.B. Stuart. At Trevilian Station, his brigade was nearly destroyed. At Third Winchester, he participated in an epic cavalry charge. Elevated to lead the Third Cavalry Division, Custer played a major role at Tom's Brook and, later, at Appomattox, which ultimately led to the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia. $15.00 USD

On the Dangerous Edge: British and Canadian Trench Raiding on the Western Front 1914-1918 Examines the nature, purposes, mechanics, execution and value of trench raiding. Leadership was critical, since raiding posed many challenges, including vicious hand-to-hand fighting most often at night in unfamiliar trenches. These are just some of the reasons why raids are high in human interest. Includes 29 maps, 28 black-and-white photos, and 9 black-and-white illustrations. $50.00 USD

Also explores the relevant events leading up to the titanic clash, and those events associated with its aftermath. Includes new discoveries, revealed for the first time in this book, that shed new light on the battle. $20.00 USD
