The Valley of Tears... 7th Brigade Stands Defiant  Download includes:  

  • One hundred and eighty-one counters depicting the infantry, T-55, Centurion, and T-62 tanks, helicopters, and weapons that fought for control of the Golan Heights.
  •  Two 8.5" x 11" maps covering approximately a four-kilometer section of the Golan Heights between Tel Hermonit and Booster. 
  •  Game system incorporates rules for Saggers, heliborne assaults, AVLB, air superiority and even air-to-air combat.  

The Valley of Tears: 7th Brigade Stands Defiant is a simulation of the Syrian attack on the Golan Heights during October of 1973. The game focuses on capturing the feel of the Syrian assaults during 7-11 October, not a specific battle.  The map covers approximately a four-kilometer section of the Golan Heights between Tel Hermonit and Booster. The counters represent infantry platoons (40-60 men), Sagger Teams, and vehicle platoons (2-5 vehicles). Each turn represents fifteen minutes to one hour. 

Fire combat is resolved by summing the attacking firepower of the attacking units, applying column shifts for the defender’s terrain, subtracting the defender's armor factor, rolling 1D6, and consulting the Combat Results Table (CRT). The results can reduce the units in the target hex, disrupt them, or have no effect. Units are rated for their attack value against armor and against infantry.  

This complete downloadable PDF game features the beautiful art of Nicolas Eskubi, and can be printed and played in less time than it takes to read an issue of Witchblade.  Fun, simple design, drop-jaw graphics, and no shipping! It’s a wargamer’s dream.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
