I had already opportunity to recommend previous Kickstarter campaign of Sergio Schiavi – New Kickstarter – Radetzky’s March – The Hundred Hours Campaign. It is really nice game – you can read more about it in my session reports here, here and here – so I really did not hesitate a moment when I heard about new production.

This time we move in time to the years of II World War and Italian Campaign:
