Blood Upon the Risers


-American paratrooper folk song; “Blood Upon the Risers”.

D-Day, the invasion of Normandy, everyone knows the story. Thanks to the many books and Hollywood we know the major players and the major actions, some even by heart. Pegasus Bridge and Carentan are well-known, well documented. But even the most well-known battles were influenced by smaller and lesser known actions on their periphery, fought doggedly by unknown and unsung soldiers. It is these men and these situations that the scenarios in this book are all about. It’s about sharp skirmishes, stealthy probes, and daring assaults against superior numbers, all the while surrounded by the enemy. Blood Upon The Risers: D-Day is a scenario book for NUTS! - 2nd Edition. It takes place on June 6, 1944 and covers the actions of small bands of American paratroopers of the 82nd Airborne Division during the early parts of Operation Neptune, a portion of the Overlord invasion plan. Inside Blood Upon The Risers: D-Day you will find:

• Special Airborne rules that will make your paratroopers different than normal soldiers.
• New rules for the different types of terrain you will fight in.
• Tabletop artillery rules.
• New weapon and vehicle stats.
• Ten linked scenarios covering the actions on the 6th of June.

You hit the ground running. You’re a squad leader without a squad and your first job is to find enough men to accomplish your objective. Don’t worry which unit they’re from; you can sort it out later. Can you accomplish your missions and keep your small band of paratroopers alive? That’s up to you but maybe with some good planning and a little luck you just might make it. Welcome to …

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.
