1-938006 Various STRATEGY & TACTICS QUARTERLY # 6: D-DAY D-Day 75th Anniversary: The 1944 invasion of Normandy is unique in military history, being the only invasion intended to put an army ashore for the purpose of conquering a continent. That story is told here in great detail, beginning with the plans and forces deployed by each side for a clash both knew was coming.

The Germans were scraping the bottom of their manpower barrel, resulting in a mixed bag of units, some elite, others scarcely able to defend a stretch of the coast. US and British Commonwealth units came ashore in nearly equal numbers, though that would change rapidly as British strength was waning while the US Army was waxing. The invasion day itself is examined beach-by-beach, unit-by-unit, but always with an eye on the bigger picture. Maps and images support each part of the story. Final chapters cover the ensuing battle for the beachhead and the breakout into central France.

A map poster is included depicting the entire invasion on one side and a detailed order of battle for all Allied forces on the reverse. 1 vol, 48 pgs 2019 CA, DECISION GAMES

1-963042 MODERN WAR # 42: Dragon Engulfed Sun Two-player operational-strategic-level wargame simulating a hypothetical Chinese invasion of Japan. The premise of this game is a sudden war has erupted on the Korean peninsula, compelling China to intervene in the conflict -- this time well before the United States could reinforce South Korea sufficiently to prevent it from being overrun.

The Chinese realize there may never be another opportunity to completely extirpate the US from the Asian mainland, they have irrevocably committed themselves to this path, and thus it is their resolute intention to finally settle old scores with the Empire of the Sun. The map covers the militarily significant terrain of Japan and surrounding areas. Each hex on the map equals about 36 miles (58 kilometers) from side to side. Each game turn represents about a week. Playing pieces represent divisions and brigades, as well as occasional regiments and even battalions.

Components: One 22x34-inch map on one sheet and 176 counters. Includes magazine.1 vol, 84 pgs 2019 US, DECISION GAMES
