The game is based on the European comic book series, "Les Tuniques Bleues" (known in English as "The Blue Jackets") as drawn and created by Cauvin and Lambil. It is set during the American Civil War. The manual has background information about this and a short humorous summary of the main characters that appear in the game from the comic books. There are also drawings throughout the manual.
