The Cossacks Are Coming! 2nd Edition is a brigade/division-level model of the Russian invasion of Germany in August and September of 1914. The design is a revision of the original "The Cossacks are Coming!" (People's War Games 1982). Based on the 3rd edition Death of Empires rules system the five scenarios include an introductory scenario, three individual battle scenarios (Gumbinnen, Tannenberg and First Masurian) and a campaign game scenario. The Cossacks Are Coming! 2nd Edition links with its companion game Clash of Eagles: The Battle for Galicia and Poland, 1914, to model the entire WW1 Eastern Front in 1914.
