Outstanding game and outstanding system. Really captures this history of the southern part of MG. Don't be put off just b/c you can't buy The Dvil's cauldron. WED is a great game in its own right.
(However the description of contents here as of 3/2014 is quite inaccurate with the scenario list and 4 or 11 bullets being inaccurate)
The Grand Tactical Series (GTS) recaptures battles on a grand scale with the color and atmosphere that the great campaigns deserve. Updating Victory Games' popular, playable and accurate Panzer Command system, the series is also created with exquisite historical detail and a game system that allows the players to see the great "Whys" and "What Ifs" as the campaigns unfold.
