FRONTLINE BOOKS - PACIFIC WAR SERIES

World War II in the Pacific

By May 8, 1945, World War II in Europe had ended with Allied victory, but the Pacific theater was yet to see its deadliest days. An important theatre in World War II was the Pacific War (also known as Asia-Pacific War) from 1941 – 1945. Japan was seeking to create a great Empire in Asia, on December 8, 1941 Japanese forces attacked the American naval base at Pearl Harbour (where it was still December, 7) as the United States were the only country with sufficient naval forces to oppose Japan in the Pacific. In response, the United States declared war on Japan. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Japan achieved a long series of military successes until the Japanese invasion fleet was defeated in the naval Battles. The Allies reached their turning point with the defeat of the Japanese at Guadalcanal in February 1943. Until the formal surrender of Japan on September 2, 1945, a great number of battles were fought both on sea and land. Both sides suffered heavy losses and casualties.

About the books

Based on historical facts the books cover this period and create briefings for playing Allied/US and Japanese tabletop armies and enable wargamers to refight the famous battles in Burma, the Philippines, the East Indies, Salomon and New Guniea, including Guadalcanal, Bourgainville and at last the Gilbert Island campaign with the battle of Tarawa, the landing on Betio Island in November 1943, the battles for Saipan 1944 and Iwo Jima 1945. You can choose from various lists and historical briefings for appropriate company sized battles for any size of tabletop miniatures from 1/100 to 1/72 or 28mm. In the books and in our apps we includeded all you need to set up your armies for this specific Pacific theatre. You can configure your company with a typical HQ, Combat and Weapon Platoons and of course some Support units. You find all this in full overview on the company diagrams, with special rules, point values and more to use for many rule systems.
