Campaign Franklin cover

-John Bell Hood's All or Nothing Gamble-

Following the fall of Atlanta in the September of 1864, Confederate General John Bell Hood sought a miracle. He knew that his Army of Tennessee was no match for a pitched battle against the unified Federal army now facing himand so he sought to evade destruction by doing the unexpected; he turned north and headed his army towards central Tennessee.

His plan was simple -divide and conquer. By moving north, he could threaten Union lines of communication. He envisioned a liberated Tennessee that would rally to his army, swell his ranks with new recruits and eventually cross the Ohio River and invade the north. But before this plan could succeed, Nashville had to fall, but bloody Franklin stood between Hood and Nashville.

Campaign Franklin allows you to not only play numerous individual scenarios, but allows you to play the game as a campaign. From the "what if" Battle of Columbia, to the decisive Battle of Nashville, your troops will have the chance to succeed where Hood failed. If you manage your army well and make good decisions that are offered to you as you progress, you may indeed succeed and liberate Tennessee. The campaign game features branching scenario choices, troop losses that carry over to the next battle, and many hours of exciting challenges.
