1-217070 Sowers, Lee Thomas AMERICA'S OLDE WEST: 28mm Skirmish Actions & Gunfights -- 1836 to 1890 Time to saddle up, pardner, and hit the trail to action in the Olde West, from the Comanche Wars (1836) to Wounded Knee (1890). This skirmish rule set, an offshoot of the WWII Skirmish Action rules, certainly covers the traditional Wild West (post ACW to 1880s), but the Indian Wars ranged over a far wider period and so does America's Olde West.

Initiative is by faction (gang, squad, war party, posse, etc.), which usually numbers between four and 10, and each figure gets one action: Move, Shoot, Take Cover, and so on. Then each figure dices against its Quality number for a second action...BUT, certain factions receive a second action without needing a roll. For example, US infantry do not need an action to reload. That offers subtle differences between factions.

All the popular weapons, such as Winchester '73 and Colt Peacemaker, are included in the weapon charts. Firing is a quick six-sided attacker die versus six-sided defender die, with the difference determining the result.

Includes six pages of 'army' lists: cowboys, US cavalry, native Americans, gunfighters, outlaws, and factions, scenarios, and quick reference cards. Plays well on small kitchen tables.1 vol, 48 pgs 2018 US, ON MILITARY MATTERS

1-217220 Vermilya, Daniel VALLEY THUNDER: The Battle of New Market Full-length account examines Battle of New Market on May 15, 1864 -- the battle that opened the pivotal 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign. Includes 16 b/w photos, eight maps, and woodcuts throughout. Introduces readers to a wide array of soldiers, civilians, and politicians who found themselves swept up in one of the war's most gripping engagements.

The Confederate victory drove Union forces from the Valley, but they would return, reinforced and under new leadership, within a month. Before being repulsed, these Federals would march over the field at New Market and capture Staunton, burn VMI in Lexington (partly in retaliation for the cadets' participation at New Market), and very nearly capture Lynchburg. Operations in the Valley on a much larger scale that summer would permanently sweep the Confederates from the 'Bread Basket of the Confederacy.'1 vol, 336 pgs 2018 US, SAVAS BEATIE
