Task Force 421 is an attempted simulation of the most important combined naval and air battle of the Iran-Iraq War 1980-1988, named Operation Morvarid (pearl), in a tactical/operational level. This particular battle took place in two days, during 27 and 28 November 1980; initiated by Iran landing a small Special Forces demolition team aboard the Iraqi al-Bakr offshore platform. Al-Bakr was a significant intelligence gathering post, and a safe haven for the Iraqi missile boats, from which to operate against the Iranian shipping. Before the start of the war, over one-third of the Iraq’s oil was exported via al-Bakr and the nearby al-Omayeh platform.

The First Italy Campaign (1796-1797) was actually the most brilliant military expedition of the French Revolu-tionary Wars.The Lodi manoeuver was also, strategically thinking, a large flanking operation against Beaulieu’s army.
“Au pont de Lodi” is a simulation of the May 10, 1796 battle, which opened the way to general Bonaparte’s triumph over the Austrian Lombardische Armée, leading his Italy’s army towards the seize of Milan.

Using the rules (not provided) for the La Bataille series from Clash of Arms.

ACTION FRONT! Watchtower is the first in a projected series of DTP microgames covering tactical combat in WWII. Te game's expandable system is reminiscent of the venerable Panzerblitz/Panzer Leader games, with a feeling of the Five-Star series thrown in. Each game is played on 4 x 8 inch semi-geomorphic maps, with a fast, furious sequence of play that minimizes bookkeeping and maximizes the action. Players may play the included scenarios or create their own using the provided rules.

Watchtower comes with 20 US and 20 Japanese units, allowing players to recreate the epic struggle of the 1st US Marine Division on Guadalcanal in September and October of 1942. USMC Raiders and Paramarines square off against Chi-Ha tanks and leg mortars. Special rules are included for Henderson Field and banzai attacks.

This one is an operational game on Garibaldi campaign over the Alps during the initial and central phases of the Third Italian War of Independence.

With a very peculiar chit drawing activation method and a combat system that stresses fatigue over real casualties, I obey is a fascinating study of this neglected campaign, with a see-saw motion of the counters over the splendid map and the chance for both sides to gain an unexpected victory.

he Battle of Mollwitz, April 10, 1741, was the first field battle between the Austrians and the Prussians in what the Prussians called the First Silesian War. While the Austrian Empire was in the throes of a succession crisis and was threatened by other countries, "Frederick the Great" (Friedrich II of Prussia) seized the Austrian province of Silesia. When the Austrians did react, they placed an army between Frederick and Prussia. Frederick turned and approached the Austrians in a snow storm. He had to defeat the Austrian army to re-establish his lines of communication.

As the year 2015 came to a close it was clear the world was in a new trend. Instead of fighting wars with their own conventional forces, nations found it easier to pass the burden of conflict along to private contractors. They could be expensive, but a mercenary force was less politically liable than a country and more expendable. The best survived, and went on to glory and profit. The most famous and sought after are the mercenary pilots.

Algeria is a game simulating the conflict between the FLN Arab nationalist guerrillas and the French government from 1954 to 1962. During the game, the FLN player tries to erode the authority of the French colonial authorities and replace their governing structures with his own, to the point that Algeria makes the transition from being the 10th department of France to national independence.

Bir Buyuk Turk Saldiri (The Great Turk Attack) covers the climatic end of the Asia Minor War that began in 1919. By 1922, the British, French and Italians had long abandoned the Greek Army's occupation of some 400 km in Turkey. Originally planned to recover the spoils of WW1 when Turkey surrendered, the Allied powers had promised Greece a part of Turkey, which the Greeks claimed was part of "Greater Greece". The Greeks by the Summer of 1921, had advanced to within 30 km of Ankara, there the critical battle of the Sakarya River ended the advance. The failure of the battle now turned public opinion at home and amongst troops in Turkey against the war. From 1921 to 1922, the Greek Asia Minor Army held a 400 km front line. The Greeks were hoping and desperately looking for a honorable way out of the mess that the British had got them in. Greece was going broke because of the war and depended on England to provide monetary loans. Greek morale wavered.

The Turks under Mustapha Kemal (Ataturk) were about to give a good reason for the Greeks to leave.

A political/strategy game in which five players represent the five major nations in pre-World War I Europe. They must complete against each other to achieve each nation's 'national objectives'. While actual war is not allowed in the game, the play should show quite clearly how tensions developed to such a high pitch in 1914.
