THE WAR IN PACIFIC 1941-1945

THE WAR IN PACIFIC 1941-1945
by Copley, Ernie

1-COM1098

Simulates the military, naval, economic, diplomatic, and political aspects of World War II in the Asia and the Pacific theatres. TWP may be played on its own or may be combined with The War: Europe 1939-1945 ('TWE') to recreate the entire Second World War. In conjunction with The War's Expansion Kit, gamers can now enjoy the complete TW franchise. The game includes TW: Global rules linking the Asia/Pacific and European theaters.

Features sophisticated carrier-warfare rules that capture the unique features of the Allied naval struggle against Japan. Further, TWP isn't just a naval strategy contest. Unlike some WWII strategy games, Nationalist China plays an active role in TWP, and a player's diplomatic strategy in China may be as important as his military strategy.

As in TWE, there are numerous optional rules and variants, from the Doolittle raid to Japanese Fleet suicide missions. Scenarios include Changsha (Nationalist China vs. Japan, Fall 1939); Guadalcanal; Coral Sea; Midway; the Eastern Solomons; Leyte; Okinawa, 1941-1945 Pacific War Campaign; 1942-1943 Turning Point; and TW-Global, combining TWP and TWE into one monster campaign game.

For those who want to run the full Europe-Pacific campaign, joining both games together, you'll need about 80 hours to recreate all of WWII.
