Blaze Away WWII can be used for small-scale raids and patrol scenarios to battalion to division sized set-piece attacks along prepared defences including beach landings. BAWWII can provide equally rewarding results for those who have preferences to ‘infantry only’ and ‘armour only’ combat. Of course, the main intention is a workable interaction between combined arms.

Buckets of Dice™ concepts are not used as this frustrating mechanism has been tested and discovered to be a time wasting activity with no game purpose served. Saving throws and similar gizmos only slow down the (all important) action without delivering any benefit, only delaying the end result.

These rules are a collection of ideas that have origins from many other rule sets as well as a wealth of personal experiences from playing many WWII period games. Balancing the complex variety of troop types, weapon types and vehicle types as well as the historical fighting capabilities of the combatant nations is always the hardest task. However, there should be enough scope with these rules to adapt them to suit your tastes.

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.
