While Rommel’s Afrika Korps was capturing the attention of the world, its fate was being decided in the Mediterranean. No matter how brilliantly the general and his troops performed, they could not win without the supplies and equipment necessary to fight.

Supermarina II is the continuation of the Origins award-wining Supermarina I. Containing over two dozen new scenarios, Supermarina II shows the full range of operations that the naval war in the Mediterranean Sea. Covering the period from July of 1942 to August of 1942, Supermarina II includes everything from submarine attacks on battleships and aircraft carriers, to big-gun fleet engagements between battleships and cruisers. These include several scenarios suitable for solitaire play.

            Containing 24 scenarios, Supermarina I runs the gamut of submarine versus convoy actions to battleships and cruisers slugging it out off Cape Teulada (Spartivento). Famous battles like Taranto and Matapan are included, as well as several scenarios suitable for solitaire play.

            Campaign scenarios cover the massive convoy operations to Malta, including Operations, Halberd, Harpoon, Vigorous, and Pedestal, the classic surface engagements of First and Second Sirte, as well as the battles of the Malta striking forces.

            This supplement for the Command at Sea tactical WW II miniatures game allows the player to make the kind of decisions a ship or a battle group commander faced in combat. Victory depends on understanding the situation and making the right choices.

            This supplement uses the ships and aircraft from Mediterranean Fleets and Home Fleet.

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.
