This book brought some much needed refinements to the core Victory at Sea system, but unfortunately didn't go as far as it should have.The book itself is a high quality book in terms of production values, although apparently there are some errors in the stats.In addition to doing more in terms of rules revisions, I would like to have seen them include all the original ships in the book as well, so that there was a single source for looking up ship stats. I suppose that probably would have made it a full second edition, which the game doesn't really need at this point.Overall, I'd say its an excellent buy for the money and a worthy addition to the Victory at Sea line.

Well worth the buy and I really like the little historical side note as :

The SHINANO was laid down as the third of five projected YAMATO-class battleships, but construction was suspended prior to the war. Following the disastrous losses at the Battle of Midway, SHINANO was selected for conversion to an aicraft carrier.

Enjoy

I was lead developer so I'm a little biased. Fleshes out VaS, more ships and planes, new rules and rules changes. Takes VaS above the beer and pretzels category.

More detailed torpedo and air rules with motor torpedo boats, kamikazes, and night fighting added. The Soviet Navy makes its first appearance in the series, but all the other fleets get additional ships as well. A must have volume for Victory at Sea fans.

Pretty much an essential purchase to make the original game playable, it does add a lot to VaS

If you play Victory at Sea, you pretty much need this one for the additional ship's stats.

Supposedly a playtester (I got my name in the book!), but actually I contributed very little. It certainly looks good, and plays well.
