Platoon Commander: India-Pakistan 1965


India-Pakistan War 1965 is a Platoon Commander module simulating the conflict during August and September of 1965 between India and Pakistan in the Chawinda region of Kashmir.  The module designer, David K. van Hoose; has brought to life some of the largest armor battles since the Battle of Kursk. The game includes five scenarios that will take the gamer from small skirmishes to the slugfests that produced what has become known as the Grave Yard of Tanks. Fight with Centurions, Easy Eight Shermans, Pattons, and AMX-13 tanks, insert Guerillas behind the enemy’s lines, and call devastating artillery support. The historically accurate forces are at your command. Can you lead them to victory?


Platoon Commander is a Mark H. Walker designed, platoon-level game system depicting armored combat from 1936 into the near future. The counters represent everything from tanks and infantry to armored personnel carriers and, as the technology progresses, even missile teams. The game uses an innovative sequence of play; a card-assisted system that is partially impulse driven, partially turn-based, and all fun. Morale plays a decisive role, and the period’s equipment is understandably depicted with colors and numbers on each counter. From the designer of Lock ‘n Load, World at War, and Night of ManPlatoon Commander is an exciting, accessible game of strategy and tactics.

    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.
