Grant Rising – A New Look at His Army Career

By Armchair General

For a few years, a fellow named Dana Lombardy worked with the Armchair General / Weider History team as a freelance consultant. These days, he’s a partner in 1A Games, the new publisher for Tide of Iron expansions. That isn’t surprising, since he designed such classics as Streets of Stalingrad. But we learned he’s also started a book publishing company, Lombardy Studios. Its first effort, Grant Rising combines original maps with text to cover Grant’s army career in a way no other book ever has—heck, it even has maps of Grant’s movements in the Mexican War. It’s presently on Kickstarter and is a third of a way to its goal.

Normally, we don’t cover Kickstarter campaigns—frankly,  if we did we wouldn’t have time to cover anything else—but we were impressed enough with our old friend’s project that we asked for a few excerpts to share with our readers. Check them out below, and if you are interested in learning more, head on over to Grant Rising on Kickstarter.
