The makers of "Grand Tactician: The Civil War" are obvious fans of this game.

For a 1995 Simulation, this game tries to accomplish mechanics that won't be successfully pulled off for another 10 years. That said, It didn't do any of them particularly well. Yet, here we are 25 years after The Civil War's release and were still looking for that multi-faceted grand strategy gem that we know CAN be made, just hasn't gotten there yet.

I loved this game in 90s still want to play now. Thank you authors Adrian and Steve. Im from Ukraine.

Dagger had promised that this would be an adaptation of sorts of Harry Turtledove's "Guns of the South", but they never could get the rights for that ATL novel, and the game wound up being your typical "War of Northern Aggression" sim. Not a bad version, but not as good as it could have been.
