Default bloody mess

3 x 3 campaigns are a rarity here. They pit Lee, Longstreet and Hill against Mead, Reynolds and Hancock. Each commander has mighty forces at his disposal but still must depend upon his compatriots for help and co operation less he find himself without support in dire situations.
Lee, as commander and chief of the Army of North Virginia, must have a clear and precise strategy with well defined objectives and superb co ordination. If not, his commands are hunted down and decimated in the classic divide and conquer.
Mead, as commander of the Army of the Potomac, must be willing to give his field commanders great latitude in initiative when issuing directives. More importantly, all three commanders need to be able to 'march to the sound of guns' when the time arrives.
And, will either Lee's or Mead's field commanders perform and operate in a manner that accomplish said commanders objectives? Or, will they go rogue?
The campaign can often mimic three separate duel games: can Hancock defeat Hill? Can Longstreet out maneuver Reynolds? Can Mead come to the aid of a embattled field commander? Will Lee be able to secure his desired objective without interference from the AOP? will ( or can Lee, Hill and Longstreet lure Reynolds into a trap, engage him and decimate him in a three to one smash that leaves the union reeling?)
More often than not, the classic 'Gettysburg battle' soon develops as both sides converge in a bloody mess.
The 3x3 is not as historically accurate as the 5x5 crew campaign, but it still offers a great game play and demonstrates the great extent to detail and accuracy the creators went to when developing this scenario.

Welcome aboard musketman> You will need to accept your command and the union trio will be filled. I see you are new to the game: should you have any questions please do not hesitate to inquire either through the forum or directly.
A rather strange request, but I am asking you to reply to this thread so as to determine your intent and commitment. thanks! (: zobs
