AtC - Over the Trenches!

Watermarked PDF

Over the Trenches! is an expansion product for Above the Clouds! (which is required for use).  

This expansion is intended to take Above the Clouds! back into the smoke-filled skies of the Great War.  Above the Clouds! rules allow for air combat in the age of all-metal (or nearly all metal) monoplanes with heavy machine-gun and cannon armament, Over the Trenches covers an much more primitive air war fought by pilots in the open cockpits of canvas-covered contraptions, in freezing conditions of altitudes up to 20,000’ (and almost always without the benefit of on-board oxygen systems), isolated from each other by a complete lack of radios.  Added to that, they did so without the ability to bail out as parachutes were either unavailable, disallowed by military leadership, or simply too heavy to carry without adverse effects on their aircraft’s performance.

In spite of all this, or perhaps because of it, this was a romantic period of air combat.  Welcome to air combat Over the Trenches!

Product Information
File Size:
6.38 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.
