VANDAL HEAVEN: Reinterpreting Post-Roman North Africa

The Vandals conquered Roman North Africa in the first half of the 5th Century AD. Asserts that post-Roman North Africa thrived under the Vandals.

When Justinian I and the Byzantines reconquered the area in the AD 530s, they weren't welcome and built chains of small forts along the frontier and interior to keep an unhappy local population under control.

 WORLD AT WAR #95: Khalkin-Gol War 1939 Wargame

WORLD AT WAR #95: Khalkin-Gol War 1939 Wargame

Khalkin-Gol War is an operational-level, two-player wargame covering a what-if Japanese-Soviet war in Mongolia in 1939. The historical campaign saw a series of limited actions in the late spring and early summer of 1939 along the Khalka River (Khalkin Gol) on the Manchukuoan/Outer Mongolian border. The campaign ended in a corps-level battle in August 1939 in which the Soviets decisively defeated the Japanese and produced a cease-fire between the two antagonists. The assumption of the game is that both Tokyo and Moscow decided instead to turn this into a full-scale war. Each turn of play represents a month of operations. Each hex on the map is approximately 30km. Ground units are mostly built around divisions, with breakdowns into brigades and regiments. Air units represent anything from an elite squadron to a mediocre group. Contains: 22x34-inch map, 176 5/8-inch counters, and magazine. $50.00 USD
