I must say I'm impressed with the quality of the AARs. Some of the historical maps used make you feel you're actually reading some real headquarters discussions accounts. Also, the generals really explain what they're up to, what they thin, what they worry about... You can actually understand how t...

Historic war-time bios seem like overkill to me. If you really want the information there are literally dozens of sites online that have it.

It's called a train. The Confederate player has access to them. I like how most generals start in the capitol, and the player gets to decide where to send them. That's good game design.

Yeah, and it looks like Louisiana and Texas are not as well railed as the game makes them, either. Hmmm.
