Revolution of Strategy product page:
    Game description

    The dawn of modern times tore America apart. In the arduous wars and bttles of the 19th Century a great nation began to develop. Mexico and Texas, North and South fought hard and embittered for domination. Even far beyond the times of the occurences themselves the generals and battles are still known.

    After the succesful add-on "Fight Back", American Conquest - Divided Nation sets forth into a new century.

    Product description

    The game is divided into two parts:
    The previous game pattern which has had a small selection of units from the Nineteenth Century, and the Nation of Pirates added to it. A new richly equipped battle mode from the Nineteenth Century with the Nations Texas, Mexico and both the Northern and Southern States. Altogether nine campaigns, with more than fifty maps that have been produced from historical material and information lead the player through the battles and offer eventful, varied, interesting and surprising challenges. A large range of different uniforms and units convey the dazzling array of the battle fields of that time, and gives an insight into the happenings as it must have been. We tried, as precisely as possible to produce the most important battles of the war, and to follow the most important generals with their success, or to lead each nation through the most important stages of the war. From the dazzling cavalry battles to the first trench fighting.
