What is Men of Iron Battles Tri-pack: Men of Iron, Infidel, Blood & Roses about?

A more perceptive understanding of combined-arms warfare and the effective use of defensive terrain can be found in Men of Iron, the game that started it all.

These scenarios highlight the key element that made these battles so fascinating: the defensive power of the longbow. The Battle of Agincourt describes Henry V’s famous victory.

Christian and Muslim battles were fought throughout the early Crusades period in Men of Iron: Infidel, the second volume in the series. In this period, cavalry reigned supreme and European mounted, armored men-at-arms faced off against Eastern European/Turkish light cavalry tactics – relying on the effectiveness of their mounted archers.

Blood & Roses is about the battles of the Wars of the Roses in England between 1455 and 1487. Men were heavily and totally armored during this period of warfare, so much so that their mobility was compromised. Additionally, gunpowder was introduced – mostly in the form of field artillery – in noticeable quantities. Even though many English men-at-arms rode horses, they did so almost exclusively as a means of transportation. Almost all of the fighting took place on foot … and it was quite vicious.
