No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. . . . . . . Over the Top is a definitive set of miniatures wargame rules. They allow players to recreate the problems that bewildered commanders three-quarters of a century ago. All the weapons of the period are represented: gas attacks, artillery barrages, trench systems, rudimentary armored fighting vehicles, and the machinegun. Based on the proven and award-winning Command Decision wargame rules system, Over the Top casts players in the roles of general officers ordering battalions, regiments, and brigades into battle. 10 SCENARIOS: Over the Top includes 10 WWI scenarios designed to produce a maximum of military action. Scenarios vary from the simple, one-afternoon engagement to more involved and complex situations: 1.) Home Before the Leaves Fall.
