Back to News Listing Scourge of War: Gettysburg Wallpaper!

Posted: Wednesday, July 3, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

Type: Press Release

 

It began as a skirmish but by its climax involved 160,000 Americans. It became the most famous battle of the Civil War. It took three days of bloody fighting under the burning July sun to imprint a small town in Pennsylvania—Gettysburg—on the American psyche forever.

Known as the turning point of the Civil War, the Battle of Gettysburg culminated on the 3rd of July with Pickett's Charge, a dramatic assault by 12,500 Confederates on the Union line at Cemetery Ridge. The charge was repulsed by Union rifle and artillery fire, at crushing loss to the Confederate army. After the battle, General Lee led his beaten army on a torturous retreat back to Virginia.

Today, exactly 150 years after that historic day, Matrix Games and NorbSoftDev (www.norbsoftdev.net) want to commemorate the Anniversary with gorgeous wallpapers taken from the Scourge of War: Gettysburg box art, painted by Don Troiani.

In the .zip file you are going to find different sizes of the image, so you will be able to choose the perfect one for your desktop.  The file can be downloaded HERE.

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

The 1918 Kaiserschlacht (or Spring Offensive) was the last attempt by the German High Command to make a breakthrough in the Western Front.

On the 21st  of March 1918, a series of attacks along the front line held by the British Fifth and Third Army began. Strengthened by divisions coming from the Eastern Front and with an extended use of troops trained in infiltration and assault tactics (Stormtroopers), the Germans were able to achieve the largest territory advance of the war.

However, this all-out offensive didn’t gain a decisive victory. The Germans lost irreplaceable veteran troops and the conquest of the new territories resulted in hard to defend positions with a supply line that was stretched too far.
