From the Studio of General Pettygree, see,
for the astounding WWII adaptive drama of the Australian counterattack versus the Japanese at Milne Bay, New Guinea. It features biplanes, AFVs, tough and stubborn infantry fighters on both sides, the Special Naval Landing Force which refused to give up their old 1930s uniforms and the appearance of Papuan natives.
Of note was the ebb and flow of this real wargame, rain-soaked ground effects and the unique reset rule.
For some the occupation of Jepson's Bar was a very important matter indeed.
The story is pictorially told in the Pettygree style by brief captions. The General says this is a "Spectacle Wargame." Rare indeed these days.
Find out if Flight Officer Horne's prediction of sweeping away the invasion force as "shark biscuits" came true.
