Constantinople is the city at the center of the world, the point at which Europe touches Asia, the citadel at which empires and cultures clash. Construct a section of her fabled walls and architecture. Construct the sultans, the princes, the armies, the mercenaries, the ships, the catapults and cannons whose 53 day chess game in 1453 reshaped the world. The 11th in our Understanding Conflicts series. Special thanks to Osprey Publishing New Vanguard research. Batteries & Estes rockets included.
