Zarumilla: The Peru Invasion of Ecuador 1941


This little known military offensive in July 1941 involved the Peruian army attacking Ecuador over a long standing border dispute. The attack was a minature "blitzkrieg" involving Czech 38 tanks, US and Italian aircraft against an unprepared Ecuador (think, the destruction of the German Army Group Center in 1944). While WW2 had nothing to do with it, the Peruian use of paratroops even caught the eye of Hitler in their accolades. The Ecuador troops fought well against infantry but when combined with tanks and aircraft bombing, most fled. The attack lasted just a week. While the game is easy, it does require planning with its unique system where units that move and attack are weaker than those who have not moved before attacking.

Game scale is 1-1.5 mileshex with daily turns. Units mostly company or platoon. 1 11x17 inch map, 280 counters.

Product Information
File Size:

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.
