Wow! Thanks DoW! I'd been kicking myself for not picking up the first campaign book.

Ah, DRM-FREE. Not "Free". That's OK though.

Anyone get it yet? Details on how many pages? I'd probably be looking at getting this printed, would like to know what I'm in for before I buy.

I have downloaded it already. 112 pages. Basically the entire book, minus the front and back covers. works out in sterling at just under £10. Only thing its 'missing'is the counters etc that came with the book, but I guess at lerast you have the campaign rules and scenarios

Did they correct the mistakes from the original hard cover? See errata here:

I can see the pdf at DoW website which is great. But, what about the new summary cards that should accompany the campaigns as shown below?

Includes following summary cards:

Actions
20 - Paradrop
21 - Smoke Screen
22 - Armor Breakthrough
Special Weapon Assets
1 - Special Weapon Assets Rules
2 - Anti-Tank Gun
3 - Mortar
Terrain
66 - Abatis
Troops
21 - Brandenburgers
22 - Depleted Units

The pdf won't give me these new cards will it?

Any response appreciated. Thanks

I'd say making a couple counters or making substitutions isn't that big a deal. Access to scenarios and rules linking them together would be worth the price of admission to me, if I hadn't already tracked down a used copy.

Sorry you are disappointed. Perhaps these will help:

Are you kidding? The heart of the campaign books (and M44 for that matter) is the scenarios and you get a TON of them!!

That's DOW in a nutshell!

If you buy the Breakthrough boards, you also need to buy Winter Wars to get the right cards!

That is ugly indeed, but having the books available as PDF, even without cards, etc is a very good idea.

Can anybody with the PDF confirm if the following fixes have been made to the PDF based on the errata? (see link below)
