Games We Play - Wars of Independence

Overview

The First World War? The French and Indian War was the North American part of a much larger war raging in the mid-Eighteenth Century called the Seven Years War. The Empires of Britain and France were struggling for control of multiple areas around the world. In North America, that struggle raged for 5 years in actions ranging from isolated skirmishes to full scale invasions. Quebec would be the primary prize for the armies and its fall would mean the almost guaranteed defeat of New France.

Scenarios

Overview

In the late 1700's, the 13 British colonies in America decided to do something incredible: declare their independence from their King and country. The resulting struggle would pit the most powerful country in the world against this rebellion. The outcome would decide the fate of the new world.

Campaign 1776 allows you to recreate most all of the major battles of the American Revolution. The battles of Bunker Hill, Guilford Courthouse, Saratoga, Yorktown, and many others are covered in high detail allowing you to command either American or British forces against both human and computer-controlled opponents. And in the campaign game, you can fight several linked battles in campaigns of the north, center, and south.

As the American commander, can you win independence against the powerful British forces sent against you or as the British commander, can you put down the rebellion in the colonies and restore them to British rule?
