The pieces in the game represent the actual military units that took part in the historical conflict. The large numbers on the pieces indicate the relative strengths of these units. Each player maneuvers his pieces on the map to engage those of the enemy. Battles take place when units are adjacent to enemy units. The total relative strengths of the involved units are compared. The attacking Player consults a simple probability table (the Combat Results Table) to determine the outcome of each battle. Then the other player moves his units and conducts attacks. The game proceeds this way for a specified number of turns as the players try to achieve the historical objectives set forth in the rules. The final outcome of the game can be very different from the actual historical result. No prior knowledge of history or military tactics is required to play the game - just a little ingenuity and common sense.
