A new design by Dennis L. Bishop, Ordered To Die is a low-to-intermediate complexity, two-player, operational-level simulation of the British attempt to capture the Ottoman entrenchments at Seimanpak Mayden Muharebesi on the way to Baghdad in 1915. Solitaire play is also doable, provided the player is willing to make decisions for both sides. The British player controls all British and Indian units; his opponent controls the Ottoman and Arab units. Counters by French artist Lionel Liron and map by map artist Tim Allen.
