Dawn of Iron: War of the Pacific (1879-1884)


Dawn of Iron: War of the Pacific (1879-1884)

This Dawn of Iron battle pack expansion takes you just beyond the American Civil War into a historically adjacent conflict in South America involving ironclads and wooden ships. The War of the Pacific primarily involved Peru and Chile as they battled for naval supremacy over valuable guano/nitrate reserves along the South American western coast lines. Both nations armed their navies with the latest ironclad designs from British shipyards, which famously clashed on the Peruvian and Chilean waters from the 1879 Battle of Iquiqui and beyond. 

This is a super-sized pack, packed with eight (8!) historical scenarios, two new missions (which are also applicable for your ACW games) and all of the ships you'll need to tell the story of the first half of the conflict. A second expansion covering the finale of the naval war at Angamos is forthcoming, so stay tuned!

Inside you will find:

  • History & Maps of the War (16pgs)
  • New Mission and Scenario rules (2pg)
  • 8x Historical Scenario
  • 2x General Play Mission (inspired by the battles)
  • 23x Ship Cards (12x Chilean, 9x Peruvian, and 2x British. Contains formats for A4 and US Letter paper sizes.)
  • 12x Fortification Cards (Contains formats for A4 and US Letter paper sizes.)
  • 22x New Upgrade Cards (A4 and US Letter paper sizes)

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.
