FOW in 2016

Gung-Ho
US Marine Corps in the Pacific


The US Marine Corps has had a long and proud history as part of the US armed forces, and the Pacific Campaign of 1941 to 1945 is perhaps its finest hour.

During the course of the war the Marine Corps had expanded from two brigades of about 18,000 Marines to six divisions, five air wings, and various supporting arms to over 485,000 Marines.

They were the tip of the American spear during the Pacific campaign conducting amphibious assaults from Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands, through the atolls of Marshall Islands, to Islands of the Marianas with the invasions of Saipan, Tinian, and Guam. They prepared the way for the assault on Japanese by taking the Japanese possessions of Iwo Jima and Okinawa, facing fierce fanatical resistance from Japanese defenders in some of the most savage fighting of the entire war.

Banzai
Imperial Japanese Forces in the Pacific


The Japanese Imperial armed forces had been at war since 1931 in China and Manchuria. Their war in the Pacific is just the next step in asserting their leadership over the Asia-Pacific region. In a series and well-planned and executed campaigns in late-1941 and 1942 veteran Japanese forces quickly asserted their dominance in southeast Asia and the western Pacific, toppling the western colonial powers and taking control of these resource rich regions for the greater good of the Japanese Empire.

However, the Japanese strike on Pearl Harbor has woken the Americans. The Japanese must fight with determination to hold their gains, to push the westerners back, and consolidate Japanese control.

Each inch of ground is not given lightly, with each beach, hill, village, island, and airfield defended and counter-attacked with a ferocity and spirit of will that no enemy can stand against.

late war

For the Late-War period, we will see three new books.

Two are the Bulge compilations, combining Blood, Guts & Glory, Nuts and The Devil’s Charge, including plenty of all-new content.

Digital for Android

And speaking of Flames Of War Digital, the Android version of the app is in the pipeline for a 2016 release. We don’t have a date yet – because it is an external project we don't have full control over how long it will take.
But we hope it will be available by the end of March.

Zijn die eigenlijk speelbaar als je tegen een tankleger komt want deftige tanks hebben ze wel niet in EW.

En ik denk nog altijd dat je het best boek tegen boek speelt :)
