DEVIL BOATS: PT Boats In The Solomons

DEVIL BOATS: PT Boats In The Solomons
by Carter, Joe


Wargame covers the months from July to September 1943 -- the most active months during the campaign against Japanese forces in the New Georgia Islands area as US forces advanced northward. As PT Boat commander, you will lead up to four PT boats on nightly patrols from your PT base on Rendova Island. Your primary goal is to sink as many IJN barges as possible in an attempt to prevent them from transporting troops and supplies to the surrounding islands.

Most patrols can be completed in 15-30 minutes, with the occasional 1-hour patrol if several enemy convoys are encountered. The option to play Short and Medium campaign games of one or two months is also included. One thing is certain: no two missions will ever play the same.
