    Storming the Heights, The Battle of the Alma, Crimea 1854 is a simulation of one of the first major battles of the Crimean War, fought on 20 September 1854. This game models for the first time in a highly-playable format the key elements of the battle — command control (lack of generalship), weaponry, and tactical formations — and aims to captivate players with its strikingly beautiful period map and counters designed by graphic artist, Terry Leeds.
