North & South is a 1989 strategy and action game by Infogrames, set during the US Civil War. It is based on a Belgian comic strip, Les Tuniques Bleues, first published in 1972. The game is therefore rather lighthearted in tone, despite the grim subject matter.

This game is another one of those cases like Lemmings where the CPC port is almost as beautiful graphically as the benchmark Amiga release. Certainly the C64 version is a big step down by comparison.

The arcade sequence on the train in North & South seems to be inspired by the Data East arcade game Express Raider (1986) which was also ported to the CPC in 1987.
