LAST STAND AT THE LITTLE BIGHORN

'There are not enough Indians in the world to defeat the Seventh Cavalry.' -George Armstrong Custer

'All we wanted was peace and to be left alone... then Long Hair came.' -Crazy Horse

With the temperature hovering near 100 degrees, the thin blue line of cavalry troopers moved in a northwesterly direction. Just off a forced night march, they were weary, but the sense of imminent battle ignited a combination of fear and excitement that so often accompanies men into combat. Led by the golden haired 'Boy General', the man who never sounded a retreat, their victory was certain.

Not far away in the dusty Sioux-Cheyenne village, the largest in Indian history, things moved more slowly. Up to two thousand warriors had gathered there, also confident. Their tribal elder, Chief Sitting Bull, had told them that victory would be theirs. And, like the cavalry approaching, they were also led by a charismatic and undefeated warrior, the enigmatic Tasunka Witko, or Crazy Horse. Today would be their day. Today would be a day for revenge and redepmtion.

The sun passed its zenith in the sky as the afternoon came on, the breeze blowing through the tall greasy grass. And riding on that wind, was Destiny.

It was a hot day.

It was a good day to die.

Details
Desperate Glory is an abstracted company level tactical combat game covering the Battle of the Little Bighorn. It pits Custer's divided 7th Cavalry against the largest gathering of Sioux-Cheyenne Warriors in history. Each map 'hex' represents about 20 yards and each turn represents about 5 minutes of real time.

Good but i own two HPS games (TU and POA) and they are far.... I mean, REALLY REAAAALLLY FAR from being well polished.

I can't recommend or see this game with good eyes considering HPS's reputation and game quality.

Desperate glory is only published by HPS. It is also a specific battle so very small in its scope. TU and POA2 are huge in their scope and extremely complex. I understand your point though.
