World on Fire: The Third World War Book 1

Watermarked PDF

World On Fire is a series of Scenario Books detailing the battles of the Third World War from January-March 1991. In it you will find TO&Es for all the units involved, stats for all the air and naval forces involved, tactical scenarios that can be used in miniatures games and a set of Quick Play rules that will allow you to quickly play out battles you don't want to play out in detail. When complete, the series will allow you to play a complete Campaign game of the entire war.

The books have been designed for use with A Fistful of TOWs 3. However, the scenarios and campaign data can be used in conjunction with any modern miniatures rules with some adjustment.

Book 1: Landjut Phase 1 is the first book in the series and details the fighting for Berlin, Denmark and the north German coast in the first 10 days of the war. It contains the complete TO&Es for Denmark and East Germany as well as other units involved in this part of the war.

This product is approved for use with A Fistful of TOWs 3.

A plausible political backdrop against which the author plots out some interesting tabletop scenarios. The imbalances in forces, quality, etc mean that each side has some interesting choices to make and can 'win' by not 'losing' badly. Personal [...]

The scenarios are nice. However, I see the following problems: the PDF contains too much protection, i.e copy and paste is disabled the army lists don't use the format of the original ruleset, but instead a "bathtub" ver [...]

This looks to be the start of a good game system / series; basically it provides the maps and scenarios for whatever game system you are using. It is designed for Fistful of TOWS 3 Miniature rules, but I have found it works well for World at War (LOF) [...]

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.
