To Arms!

Covers the period 1750-1875. A set of rules intended to recreate major historical battles on the tabletop, with 2-4 players per side. There are rules for command and control, orders, fatigue, initiative, and morale. Each turn consists of a variable number of impulses, and tactical moves and melee are handled on a move-countermove basis. Combining the basic rules with a period supplement provides complete rules for that time period.
