Wars in America: 1778 Northern Campaign Scenario
Determined to consolidate his forces, Clinton successfully executed a strategic retreat of the British army overland to New York City from Philadelphia, managing to fight General Washington to a draw at Monmouth.
In Wars of America, a game by AGEOD, I take command of the 1778 British Army with a different ambition. I have decided to keep control of Philadelphia while expanding my influence in and around New York. I am also taking a more aggressive posture in New England in order to keep the Continental Army in New England occupied as well as the French who have joined the war against their old adversary Britain.
|While offensive land operations in New England are being led by Valentine Jones and William Tryon, Admiral Drake leads a number of sea actions from the Long Island Sound to the Cape.|
|With Washington forced to retreat, I consolidate my forces, seizing Perth Amboy, further securing my position in New York.|
|Land successes by Brig. General Valentine Jones have resulted in the capture of New London and New Haven, while Admiral Drake moves parallel to Jones onto Long Island Sound.|
|In an effort to harden my control of seized territory, I begin construction of forts in New York and in New Haven. Fort Valentine Jones is besieged quickly by the French Admiral d'Estaing.|

I am thoroughly enjoying it and if you like operational AMRW games, this is for you.
