            Command at Sea (CaS) is an award-winning World War II tactical naval rules system. It can be used to simulate almost every naval operation of  World War II with accurate and consistent results. Victory depends as much on the tactics and planning of the players as on the ships and equipment under their command.

            The CaS system emphasizes technical and historical accuracy using a streamlined, easy to follow rules structure that keeps the action fast-paced and fun. Combat resolution is built around a single die roll philosophy that keeps the players focused on the battle and not on the mechanics of the rules.

            Command at Sea allows the player to experience the kind of decisions that a ship or battle group commander must make when he fights a sea battle during World War II. Victory depends on making the right decision at the right time. CaS is more than just a game, it is an accurate simulation. The models that make up the heart of CaS are based on historical technical data and extensive operational analysis. Tactics that were successful in actual battles will also work in CaS.

            Key features of CaS include:

            • A detailed but simple gunnery system

            • Elegant torpedo rules including a lead angle solver

            • Am accurate armor model, including torpedo protection systems

            • Realistic damage results with varying degrees of severity for fire and  flooding

            • Historically accurate modeling of sensors (radar, HFDF, sonar & visual)

            • Innovative aircraft rules which allow rapid resolution of mass air attacks

            • Unique methodology for conducting depth charge attacks

            • Educational side bars which provide historical background and a description of some of the matematical models used to calculate game values.

             Our goal in designing Command at Sea was to make World War II naval combat as exciting and fast as possible, but without compromising historical accuracy or losing the tactical "feel" of the game. We believe we did just that, but we invite you the players to "assume the watch" and judge for yourselves just how well we hit the target.

Is the ship data from earlier versions of the rules usable? I have Rising Sun. Maybe 2nd edition?

I am a bit confused with the organization of the modules for Command at Sea. I have purchased the core rules and now realize there is no ship information or scenarios included in them.

If I wanted to explore the USN-IJN campaign what supplements would I need to purchase? It looks like I'd need Rising Sun and Steel Typhoon, but would I also need to purchase Rising Sun Form 10s, American Fleets and Emperor's Fleet in order to play a game?

Also, when will Fear God and Dread Naught become available?

The minimum you need would be American Fleets and Emperor's Fleet, which are the data books, the other two are very useful scenario books. Fear God and Dreadnaught is being redesigned to be compatible with the other Trilogy titles and will come out next year.

Are the files of Command at Sea, including the modules and scenario books, available here at Wargamevault containing files of cardboard counters for DIY?

The core rules do not have any data sheets, scenarios or counters - just the rules.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
