About the Books
Based on historical facts the books cover the period 1941 – 1945 and create briefings for playing Allied/US and Japanese tabletop armies and enable wargamers to refight the famous battles in Burma, the Philippines, the East Indies, Solomon Islands and New Guniea, including Guadalcanal, Bourgainville and at last the Gilbert Island campaign with the battle of Tarawa, the landing on Betio Island in November 1943, the battles for Saipan 1944 and Iwo Jima 1945. You can choose from various lists and historical briefings for appropriate company sized battles for any size of tabletop miniatures from 1/100 to 1/72 or 28mm. In the books and in our apps we included all you need to set up your armies for this specific Pacific theatre. You can configure your company with a typical HQ, Combat and Weapons Platoons and of course some support units. You find all this in full overview on the company diagrams, with special rules, point values and more to use for many rule systems and, of course, our Core Rulebook for the Pacific and South East Asia.
