"Brad Butkovich is to be highly commended for this effort! As a long-time scenario designer with several books of my own, I can appreciate the amount of time and effort (not to mention research and reading) that Brad must have put into this project."

"The River of Death: Regimental Wargaming Scenarios for the Battle of Chickamauga is a must own for Civil War miniatures gamers.  The impressive research, full color maps, background on specific actions of the Battle of Chickamauga, and the ability to convert the scenarios to a wide variety of miniatures rules are just a few of the reasons this is so."
