Combat Command - Basic Game

Watermarked PDF

Take Command with Combat Command!


In Combat Command you take the role of a Battlegroup Commander maneuvering a mixed force that can range from a reinforced infantry battalion task force to a battalion sized panzer kampgruppe.  The game recreates World War II tactical battles by using an innovative integrated sequence of play which meshes the actions of each player in order to simulate the swirling battles of the period.                                                                                                 


 The game allows you to command forces modeled on historical battlegroups in games based on actual battles or in hypothetical match ups between roughly evenly matched forces.  All technical data is presented in one table covering a wide range of equipment used in World War II from French Somuas to German Panthers.  The easy to use Quick Reference data chart allows players to concentrate on maneuver and not on minutiae yet covers all the important weapon systems and hardware innovations of the war.



The Basic Game contains the data for the standard equipment for most of the great powers and additional supplements will add the full range of equipment used by both the major and minor powers. 


In Combat Command morale and troop quality are just as important as hardware.  A unique move and fire sequence allows high quality troops to out maneuver lesser foes while high morale troops will stubbornly hold out from all but the most overwhelming firepower.


Deliberately designed to have an easy learning curve so that it can be used in large convention games but with a force balancing mechanism based on historical organizations so that players can fight tournament style match ups.


A game for both the causal gamer and the hardcore World War II enthusiast.

Can someone please explain how orders work in this game?

Is it the same as later Command Decision? i.e. there is a command phase where all order chits are placed by both sides covered by a cap so the other side can't see them and then orders are revealed in the movement phase.

I ask because that mechanic makes solo play impossible (or at least very unsatisfying).

Original electronic
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.
