There is an old saying about the British army, that it will lose every battle in a war, except for the last one.

Bill would have to chip in with regards to how much play time he actually put in, but for what it's worth he told me it was a bit of a slog when he submitted his copy. We don't do review based on little-to-no playtime though - that would defeat the point.While I am a WW1 fan and have read more than one book on the Gallipoli campaign plus a lot more on Turkish military history from Balkan Wars to the Caucasus campaigns, this game looks way too complicated to enjoy playing.
I even question how much it has actually been played out? Did the reviewer play out a whole game himself? I'm not being critical at all, I know I couldn't get thru it. And my local group would flee this game at first sight when they saw the rule book size.
Like the reviewer said, a niche product and I honestly hope that those who do buy it have a good time. I'd love to read an AAR on this thing.
Thank you for your review!
