[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

In a testament to the battlefield realism, historical accuracy and quality user experience of the game, the United States Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas has chosen Scourge of War: Gettysburg for inclusion in its suite of classroom training simulations. The Army is using the game as part of its professional education program for developing the next generation of senior Army leaders.

Scourge of War: Gettysburg is being used in two different Fort Leavenworth classes. The first class trains Simulation Operations Officers and will use computer driven simulations such as Scourge of War: Gettysburg in combination with classic map, rulebook and dice war games the Army traditionally uses.

The second Mission Command class trains students in how to exercise command and control on the battlefield. This class will use Scourge of War: Gettysburg to simulate key action on the first day of the three day Gettysburg battle, including a multi-user Rapid Decision and Synchronization Process. They will use a scenario that puts the student in the command position of Union General John Buford or

Confederate General Henry Heth, thus imposing the unforgiving real time pressure of battlefield command.

The US Army Command and General Staff College educates and develops leaders for full spectrum joint, interagency and multinational operations; acts as lead agent for the Army’s leader development program; and advances the art and science of the profession of arms in support of Army operational requirements.
