Kakazu Ridge: A WWII Mini-Campaign for the Battle of Okinawa

Watermarked PDF



The American 383rd Infantry Regiment has successfully infiltrated Kakazu Ridge and holds the crest, catching the Japanese completely by surprise.  But the men of the 13th Independent Battalion won’t let go of the ridge without a fight.

In this mini-campaign, command either beleaguered American infantry, under constant attack and cut off from their heavy artillery, or lead Japanese troops in ferocious attacks up the slopes of Kakazu Ridge.

Historically, the American companies were decimated and thrown back, but not without mauling the Japanese battalion that faced them.  How will you fare?

Kakazu Ridge is a 3-scenario mini-campaign portraying small-unit infantry combat during the Battle of Okinawa.  It has been written for A Sergeant’s War, but can easily be adapted to other WWII rules sets.  The campaign includes:

Historical background, with maps and contemporary pictures

Campaign special rules

3 linked scenarios, with overall victory determined by holding terrain, overrunning the enemy, and inflicting casualties

A painting tutorial for 15mm Japanese infantry

To play the campaign, you will need:

A Sergeant’s War or another small-unit level WWII rules set

Approximately 40 US infantry

Approximately 40 Japanese infantry

A 4’x4’ table

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.
