    "Miniature Rules for Naval Warfare 1793-1815 and Armada Period Rules Supplement."

    "The original basis for Wooden Ships and Iron Men first published by Battleline and later Avalon Hill. The version of this ruleset was developed in 1976 and is basically an early draft of the WSIM ruleset but played with miniatures.

    "In 1981 a second printing was published by Battleline called Ship of the Line by Juggernaut. The cover changed by the contents are identical to the 1976 printing of the original ruleset."

    "As the title of these rules suggests, the game's primary interest lies in the recreation of fleet actions involving squadrons of Ship o' the Line. Although plenty of rules are included to cover the smaller vessels, and some very interesting single-ship duels can be fought using these rules, they are primarily designed to allow players to command squadrons of three to six ships each."

    "As many people reading these rules may be aware, several years ago the designer of these rules published a board game on this same topic (Wooden Ships & Iron Men). The board game was developed as a simplified version of the Ship o' the Line miniature rules . . . This miniature version has since been further expanded, up-dated, modified and developed into the format you see here, which we at Battleline feel is the most complete set of rules available anywhere for tactical sailing ship actions."
