Occupation of the Rhineland, 1936, 3rd ed.

Watermarked PDF

OCCUPATION OF THE RHINELAND, 1936, 3rd ed. is a solitaire game simulating events of March, 1936, when Germany reoccupied the Rhineland militarily in contravention of existing treaties, and the response of France, and the world, to this.  The game player represents France—the major power most threatened—while the game system represents the actions of Germany, Britain, and the League of Nations.  The object of the game is for France to get Germany to withdraw from the Rhineland without threatening the French economy with ruin, or Europe with another war.  This 3rd edition is unchanged from the 2nd ed., except for new, updated game components, and verbal clarifications in the rules.

The situation is complicated because of the political and economic turmoil that might be caused in France if a full military response were done. Her best hope lies with gaining the support of Britain and the League of Nations.  Diplomatic (and possible united military response) might be enough to force Germany’s hand.  While the goal is the removal of German troops from the Rhineland, France can ill-afford unilateral mobilization, a move that could lead to undesirable consequences not only for the country, but for all of Europe.  

OCCUPATION OF THE RHINELAND, 1936 3rd ed. ranks high in playability and historicity, and comes with a small color map, a set of color counters, and rules (standard and optional).  All you need to supply are two six-sided dice, paper and pencil... and good strategy.

Publisher: Minden Games.  Designer:  Gary Graber.

Product Information
File Size:
4.17 MB
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.
