Patrol: WWII

Watermarked PDF

Patrol WWII is a fast playing skirmish system that recreates squad patrols in any theatre of the Second World War with as little as ten miniatures per side and a 4'x4' play area. Individual games last from 15 minutes to 1 hour allowing for multiple exciting games in an evening's play.
Patrol takes you beyond line ‘em up and shoot ‘em down miniature gaming. Opposing squads draw one of the 20 missions offering a large variety of tactical challenges that reflect historical tactics and weapon effects.
Stats and weapons for American, Commonwealth, Soviet, German, Italian, Japanese, and Partisans forces are included. Additional appendix expands the game into the Korean War with new weapons and missions.
Monstrous tanks, zooming jeeps with 30 cal blazing, flame throwers and mortars raining death, along with random battlefield events, create a chaotic and dangerous battlefield where a realistic morale system recreates the reactions of soldiers and their squad leader's attempts to motivate them.
A complete campaign lets you keep the same squad over multiple games (if you can keep them alive). Survivors gain experience and skills, scrounge for weapons and gear, and try to get some sleep before drawing replacements and ammunition for the next patrol.

"Very solidly done." "It scratches an awful lot of the itches you might want from a skirmish game." "I would definitely recommend that you pick up a copy of these rules"
Neil Shuck, Episode 36 - Meeples and Miniatures

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.
