Here’s a variant of Warhammer Ancient Battles for the American Revolution. No. Really. It could work.
The Krigsspil site has a large number of downloadable flag images for the American Revolution. The flags are all in .jpg format, so they can be resized to fit whatever figures you use.
This one is for a friend of mine who has been talking for years about wanting to do a game of the Battle of Oriskany from the American Revolution. The Danish wargaming site Krigsspil has a scenario for the battle of Oriskany, which was a brutal one, involving indians and militia.
In Battles of the Revolutionary War, author W.J. Wood contends that — contrary to popular belief — the war was won by American skill on the battlefield. To prove this contention, he examines in ten chapters, ten major battles of the war: Bunker Hill, Quebec, Trenton and Princeton, Brandywine, Oriskany, Saratoga, King’s Mountain, Cowpens, Guilford Courthouse, and the Chesapeake Capes. Each chapter features a detailed narrative of the battle, some useful maps and battle plans, and an analysis of the action. There also are some good organizational charts, and intellience reports. It was well worth the price.
Angel In The Whirlwind is a good, one volume account of the American Revolution. Beginning with the war’s proximate causes in the French and Indian War, and continuing on to 1782 and Washington’s retirement, this book is full of the colorful personalities that make this period so interesting. This was the first book I read when beginning my research into the Ameican Revolution. It’s a good place to start — or, if you are a Revolution aficionado, a good read to remind you why the Revolution caught your imagination in the first place.
