AirWar: 1918 2nd edition

Watermarked PDF

AirWar 1918 (2nd edition) makes the complex subject of biplane era air combat so disgustingly simple that it is ideal for beginners and experienced gamers alike. After a couple of games reference to the rule book will become occassional with players concentrating on shooting down their opponents rather than ploughing through the sub-minutiae of clauses and appendices.

The 40 page rulebook includes rules for aircraft characteristics movement, special manoeuvres, dog fighting and even rockets (yes in World War One!). Also included are optional rules for balloon busting, ground attack and trench-straffing, surface-to-air fire ("archie") and Zeppelins, as well as a campaign system. There are also ratings for 302 biplane era aircraft from the Blériot XI of 1910 to the Hawker Hart introduced in 1930.

So if you want to join the "knights of the air", you need AirWar: 1918 (2nd edition)...

Hello, in the section Manoeuvres (Page 8)rules it states ' ...players may place a manoeuvre card alongside their aeroplane, displaying an intention to perform some form of special manoeuvre.'
The rules don't appear to include any manoeuvre cards. Nor are there any images to print out (other than the Zeppelin).

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.
