Description Edit | History

Back of box

The Charge of the Light Brigade, during the crimean war, was one of the bravest, and saddest incidents in British military history.
It resulted from an infamous misunderstandig between Lords Raglan and Lucan, and saw Lord Cardigan leading the Light Brigade on an advance up a valley towards a Russian gun battery. The valley was lined on both by Russian guns and soldiers - and the casulties were horrendous. Of the 673 men who began the charge, only 195 were fit for action at its end. Although the charge was successful, not for nothing did Tennyson descibe it as "The Valley of Death" in his classic peom.

The Game
This battler simulation reaches the Battle of Balaclava, during which the Charge took place.

The game provides your chance to play all four major sectors of this epic battle - The Thin Red Line, The Charge of the Heavy Brigade, The Charge of the Light Brigade and The Battle for the Redoubts.

Plan your strategy to your smaller British, French and Turkish forces against the larger Russian enemy... or play the Russians on the attack!

The System
The Charge of the Light Brigade used a much-enhanced version of Impressions' highlt acclaimed miniature-style system (as used in Rorke's Drift and Cohort).

Extremely popular, the system features beautifully animated figures, and lets you control each army units (as shown on-screen by a soldier) individually - so you can watch the unit march off to obey your commands!

There are some very group commands, so that you can order group of soldiers into action at once - or example send a Regiment of cavalry charging towards the enemy.

The system is very easy to use, being entirely mouse - and icon-controlled, allowing you to enjoy the game without getting bogged with complex commands.

The system has been improved from suggestions received from many happy Cohort and Rorke's Drift users.
