I have recently downloaded a digital copy of a new scenario book by Brad Butkovich in which he breaks down the 1863 battle of Chickamauga into bite-sized pieces similar to my books on Gettysburg and Antietam. River of Death has more than a dozen original scenarios for Chickamauga that look highly playable. The scenarios should work for nearly all regimental-level ACW rules systems, including of course Johnny Reb 3 and Regimental Fire & Fury, as well as most others.
The maps are full color and nicely drawn. The OOB and the regimental strengths are quite good and are drawn from many different sources. Actual versus estimated strengths are delineated.
The author includes a historical background for the battle, as well as for each individual scenario. Full color photographs of the modern battlefield sectors are included within the corresponding scenario, giving the gamer who has not been to Chickamauga (or in my case, only once before) some general idea of the terrain and locale for the tabletop layout.
The book is a bargain in terms of page count and content (it is more than 120 pages in length, but is easy to read and hard to put down). The history lessons by themselves are well worth the price at $14.99 USD for a digital download that you can print yourself of copy to your hard drive.
Brad Butkovich is to be highly commended for this effort! As a long-time scenario designer with several books of my own, I can appreciate the amount of time and effort (not to mention research and reading) that Brad must have put into this project.
River of Death is published by the Wargames Vault, which has dozens of other Civil War products available for download, including paper soldiers and accessories, rules sets, historical commentaries, and other products of interest.
