Gangland is a set of wargames rules from Wessex Games, allowing you to recreate the gang battles that raged in the inner cities of the western world throughout the nineteenth century, as well as the fights against the forces of the establishment that occurred in cities like London, Paris and New York.

As well as providing a comprehensive set of rules to recreate the battles of the period, Gangland also contains seven introductory scenarios, illustrating the depth of the background in which these rules are set:

New York 1834 - join the Bowery Boys as they attempt to smash their way past the Dead Rabbits .

Chicago 1897 - meet the Irishers and Bohemians, two gangs of school kids who fought a lethal twenty-five year long gang war.

New York 1857 - the most bizarre gang war of all with two New York police forces fighting each other and attempting to free each others prisoners.

San Francisco 1875 - defend the honour of the Suey Sing Tong against the insults of the Kwong Dock Tong.

London 1887 - strike a blow for social freedom against the repression of the British government by marching on Trafalgar Square.

Bristol 1831 - join Special Constable Isambard Kingdom Brunel and resist the Reform Bill rioters attempts to storm the Guildhouse.

Glasgow 1924 - crash the Palour Boys dance hall with the Bedford & Bridgegate Boys and try and kill Razzle-Dazzle.

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.
