Books…

Eylau 1807

Eylau 1807 Battle of Preussisch-Eylau, fought in extreme weather conditions, under blizzards and temperatures of much below zero between the Great Armee and the Russians of Benningsen on 8 February 1807, has been called the most epic of Napoleon's battles, that which saw the greatest cavalry charge in history, led by Murat at the head of more than 10,000 troopers, but also the most controversial. [Italian text]. $42.00 USD

Desperate Sunset: Japan's Kamikazes Against Allied Ships 1944-45 Fully illustrated throughout, Desperate Sunset examines the development and evolution of the kamikaze using first-hand accounts, combat reports and archived histories. The Japanese High Command decided that the way to inflict maximum damage on the superior enemy forces was to get the poorly trained Japanese pilots to crash their explosive-laden aircraft onto their target, essentially turning themselves into a guided missile. The kamikazes announced themselves in the immediate aftermath of the Leyte Gulf naval battles, sinking the U.S.S St. Lo and damaging several other ships. The zenith of the kamikaze came in the battle of Okinawa, which included ten kikusui (Floating Chrysanthemum) operations which involved up to several hundred aircraft attacking the U.S. fleet. $45.00 USD

Wargames…

Nations In Arms: Valmy to Waterloo Wargame

Nations In Arms: Valmy to Waterloo Wargame Strategic-level wargame covers Napoleon in Europe from 1792 to 1815.

From 2 to 7 players manage annual national production, diplomacy, and most importantly, war. Each game year is broken into four interactive, seasonal turns. A Chit Activation system is used to recreate the chaos of war, and events occur using an Historical Event card deck. It features a one-turn tutorial scenario, four epic campaign scenarios, and five smaller scenarios. Product Information: Complexity: Moderate (about 6 out of 10); Playing Time: 50 hours for full campaign (1.5 hours and up for scenarios); Solitaire Suitability: Good due to chit pull activation system. Components: 2 oversized sections creating a 60 x 44-inch playing area; 4 countersheets; 3 full-color 8.5 x 11-inch cards with various tables, charts and player aids; 1 card deck (110 cards) of historical and tactical events; 1 rules booklet (original rulebook with errata incorporated); 1 scenario booklet (original scenario booklet with errata incorporated). $129.00 USD

Magazines With Wargames…

Paper Wars: Issue 93: Wargame 1809

Paper Wars: Issue 93: Wargame 1809 Two-player, but solitaire adaptable, wargame uses a 34 x 22-inch large-hex (¾-inch per hex) map, fewer than 12 pages of rules, and one sheet of 228 medium-size (9/16-inch) counters to provide an emperor's-eye-view of this titanic and savagely fought two-day battle. Each hex represents 875 yards, and each of the two days has four to six turns (depending on morale and exhaustion) with a separating night turn in between. Units of maneuver are mostly multi-step divisions for both sides. The game uses an alternating action sequence that keeps both players fully and tensely involved all throughout every turn. $47.00 USD
