    The Battle of Belleau Wood is one of the most famous engagements in the long and storied history of the United States Marine Corps. Weeks of brutal combat earned them the grudging respect of the vanquished Germans, who called them Teufelhunde - Devil Dogs.

    IN THE TRENCHES (ITT) system makes its Tiny Battle debut with three scenarios drawn from this exciting battle. Designed by John Gorkowski, this series enables players to game historically accurate simulations of tactical operations from the Great War. ITT challenges players to move and fight with company-level formations made of separate platoon-sized units during five minute, impulsed-based turns. The historically accurate maps are scaled to 100 yards per hex. This approach recreates WWI command and control problems and inspire historically accurate play without forcing decisions. 

    This set includes all the counters you’ll need to play these scenarios, PLUS all the status markers and administrative counters you’ll need to play any expansion. Pretty snazzy, huh?
