Fire & Maneuver v4.1

Watermarked PDF

The Second World War saw many new innovations to combat: new weapons from jets to atomic bombs, new tactics and doctrine, and innovations which replaced many old traditions.  But through it all, the infantryman remained the one indispensable item on the battlefield.  Even with all the invention and innovation, without the individual doughboy, war still could not be won.  

Fire and Maneuver is a 1 to 1 scale game recreating the ground combat of the War.  No mass tank battles, no ship to ship combat on the high seas, no dog fights at 20,000 feet.  Just men clawing their way through no-mans land to get to the enemy.  Each figure represents one soldier, one tank, one gun.  The Scale is small, one inch = 2 yards.  The combat is fierce, even hand to hand.  Each tactical move turn lasts only six to thirty seconds, but those few seconds can mean the difference between life and death, victory or defeat.

The game scale works best with 20mm figures (1/72 scale), but will work equally well with 15mm or 28mm.  Included are two sample scenariosto get you started, as well as charts and stats for most of the common weapons in use through out the later stages of the war.  The average table size for play is 4x8 feet, about the size of a ping pong table.

F&M is a great balance of realism and fast-paced game play. I am especially impressed by the way it handles spotting, surprise, and suppression on a World War Two battlefield. When you add historical elements like the real composition of German or [...]

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.
