Turkey and the Second World War

This booklet offers a new army and campaigns for Second World War gamers looking for something different. We all love the Western Desert, the Steppes of Russia, or the Normandy bocage, but there is another world out there to embrace!

It explains why and how Turkey was involved in the Second World War. How the armed forces were organized, and what you need to model them on the tabletop. The vehicles, tanks, artillery and aircraft come straight out of the lists for the main combatants. Infantry requires a little effort, but this can be done relatively cheaply, particularly in smaller scales. The Turks could have fought most belligerents, so opponents will already be in the collections of many gamers.

The organization and doctrine of the Turkish armed forces are outlined, along with army lists for some of the most popular WWII rules. There are eleven scenarios to get you started, with maps and illustrations from the author's collection. Turkey's strategic position offers battles in European Thrace, the Caucasus mountains, or the sands of the Middle East.
