Death or Glory - Battlefield provides a comprehensive rules system for handling large-unit combat in a Death or Glory campaign. While individual characters may exist in a Battlefield battle, the generic Battlefield rules do not incorporate the Death and Glory mechanics in any substantive way. In this respect, Battlefield could be viewed as an independent set of rules.
The approach of Battlefield supposes a medieval milieu, even though the system is fairly flexible. Basic unit types include Archers, Cavalry, Knights, Chariots, Infantry, Pikemen, and various irregular and racial unit types. Troops are ranked by performance level, from peasant militia to elite troops. Troops have assigned Hit Points, Combat Strength, Ego, and other values. Terrain types are provided and influence visibility, movement, and defense.
