In this 2-player card and dice development game, you, as the prosecution or defense, must convince a military tribunal that american aviator, Colonel William (Billy) Mitchell, is guilty...or innocent.
The game begins in the courtroom where Colonel Mitchell of the Army Air Service is being tried for his alleged violation of the 96th Article of War, a catchall provision of military law that would decide if his incendiary, public remarks brought discredit upon the military service.
Players will draft and play cards which will help them strengthen their case with the jurors and recruit them to their side, and find overwhelming evidence for or against the accused.
In the longest and most controversial court martial in US history (October 28-December 17, 1925), will the evangelist of Airpower be vindicated?

This is a standalone game. It is volume 2 in the Trial Series by Green Feet Games (previous Volume includes Unforgiven: The Lincoln Assassination Trial).
America was built by people like Mitchell who questioned the status quo and believed that there was always a better way...and that better way could change and even amaze the world.
