In the First
Afghan War (1839-42), the British Army of the Indus marched on Kabul, the
capital of Afghanistan, to establish a satellite kingdom. While initially victorious,
the British and Indian force became trapped in Kabul by an uprising. Attempting
to retreat back to India, the Army of the Indus was destroyed by the Afghans.
The game includes two scenarios; March to
Kabul and Rebellion &
Afghan War demonstrates the significant features of warfare in this era,
including the great variety in weapons types, the importance of supply,
leadership and the meddling of the Home Office. Players must use organizational
as well as tactical capabilities to win. The game uses the same system as Sun
Never Sets ("Campaigns of the British Empire") and French Foreign
Legion (S&T #200).
