“You are about to embark upon the great crusade, toward which we have striven these many months.” -Dwight D. Eisenhower

Hell Beach is a single large map of a French beachhead defended by Germans on the June 6, 1944 D-Day invasion done on a 15 mm scale for miniature war gaming. The German defenses include obstacles built of timber and steel to impale and sink Allied ships placed on the beach and in the water on the coastal shelf, mines hidden in the water and in the sands of the beach, two sets of barbed wire, two sandbag bunker positions for MG42s and mortars, and three pillbox casemate bunkers placed on top of a cliff looking down on the beach. 

Will the Allies again prove victorious on D-Day? Or will the German defenses defeat them this time creating an alternative history?

Beyond a war gaming reenactment, this could also be used for some interesting alternative role playing or war gaming. For example, the player characters are super soldiers for the allies (super powers or greatly improved physical and mental attributes), and are sent in during the invasion to deal with new German threats, everything from German soldiers that revive as zombies when slain but only once to German soldiers that transform into monsters to German super soldiers that could have abilities similar to their own. Their ultimate mission goal is to enter a French town and gain access to the main chateau where the experiments are being performed by a mad German scientist (or even a collaborating French scientist who derives a sadistic pleasure from turning Germans into monsters). Where the most powerful German super soldiers guard their creator (or they even turn on their creator as a twist).

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.
