STALIN'S WORLD WAR III: Wargame
Stalin's World War III is a two game package: Volume 1 - Operation Pincher & The Soviet Offensive in Europe; Volume 2 - Operation Sandown & The Soviet Offensive in the Mid-East.
This is an alternative history monster-size wargame, designed by Ty Bomba, intended to investigate the strategic parameters that would've been in place during the first 10 weeks of operations had that dictator lived long enough to put in motion one of his many plans to start a global conflict in 1953. Had he lived, the most likely start date would've been one coinciding with the signing of the Korean War armistice in July, in order to achieve maximum surprise.
Each two-map volume can be played separately by one to four players or they can both be combined into on Grand Campaign Scenario covering all four maps.
Volume 1's twin-maps (34x33-inch) cover Europe from the East German-Polish border south to Belgrade and Sarajevo and west through Rome to France's Atlantic and Mediterranean coasts. Each hexagon represents 20 miles (32.4 km). Volume 2's twin-maps (34x44-inch) cover the Mid-East from Ankara in the northwest to Tehran in the northeast, and south from there to Kuwait City and Suez. Again, each hexagon represents 20 miles (32.4 km).
