The Pacific War
An important theatre in WWII was the Pacific War from 1941 – 1945. By May 8, 1945, WWII in Europe had ended with Allied Victory, but the war in the Pacific & South East Asia raged on until the formal surrender of Japan on September 2, 1945. A great number of battles were fought both on sea and land. Based on historical facts the books for tabletop gamers cover this period and enable tabletop gamer to refight the famous battles. For any size of tabletop miniatures from 1/100 to 1/72 or 1/56 (28 mm).
In the Core Rulebook for Pacific & South East Asia you find all you need to play and reenact battles in the Pacific & South East Asia, including air combat and “what-if”-lists. The detailed Organizer Books – Tarawa, Guadalcanal, Great Asia War – include a good summary and detailed description of the historical backgrounds for appropriate battles with maps and cards and with various lists for historical battles. All these books are made to create briefings for playing Allied/US and Japanese tabletop armies.
