"...(there is) a surprising degree of depth and richness that is perhaps unexpected for such a small game. Getting the historical basis right is half the battle and distilling it down into a small game without dumbing it down is quite the challenge. White Dog Games passed that test here. There is enough flavor and overall sense of flow to this version of the First Battle of the Marne to merit your consideration and you can play it in several hours to boot!" - Smithy's Game Table
