-13% In The Works Victory or Death - The First Battle for Trenton 1776

The Turning Point of the American Rebellion

Victory or Death simulates the Christmas battle in 1776 that stunned the British, who felt on the verge of defeating the American rebellion against their empire.  The mostly Hessian force posted in and around Trenton, NJ, were surprised by the American attack.  The battle represented a turning point of the American Revolution.  Washington's army was fading through losses to combat, illness, desertion, and expiring enlistments.  He needed a victory to staunch the outflow of men and increase support and recruitment among the populace.  His attack at Trenton accomplished just that and more, shocking the British into a limited retraction of their forces spread throughout New Jersey.  And after the Battle of Princeton, just eight days later, the British abandoned most of New Jersey.

Victory or Death is a two-player game with each player taking the side of either the Americans or the British/Hessians.
