In 1964, historian Lt. Col. Joseph B. Mitchell published a compact book, Twenty Decisive Battles of the World, an expansion of Sir Edward Creasy’s most famous work from a hundred years past, updating it into the 20th Century.
Turning Point Simulations (TPS) examines these 20 battles with a new series of boxed wargames. These games emphasize accessibility and playability, and come with hard-mounted maps and mounted, die-cut counters. Each battle is presented in a design of low complexity, but high challenge, from some of the industry’s top designers.
4 titles have been issued to date and are available for purchase in a “Honeymoon” offer, for just $170 out of the USA. You can also pre-order them all.
- The Battle of Tours (725AD) – Design by Richard H. Berg
- Joan of Arc’s Victory (1429AD) – Design by Andy Nunez
- Poltava’s Dread Day (1700-22) – Design by Jason Juneau
- The Battle of Stalingrad (1942) – Design by Hjalmar Gerber
We’ve just passed our order and will keep you posted shortly about the interest of this new “Decisive Battles” series. But our guess is that it’s a very good entry point for new wargamers.
