The War That Never Was: a Planetary Operations Module

Selected Option:

May 1, 1989: The world goes to war as Soviet forces lead the Warsaw Pact armies against the defenders of the West. The war was brief, brutal, and nearly destroyed the developed world.

Or, it could have - had it actually happened.

Step into an alternate past to play out battles from The War That Never Was on a brigade and divisional level. This Strike Legion: Planetary Operations module includes:

*New rules for engineers (including bridging, bridge demolition, vehicle recovery, and in-game construction of fortifications), scouts, anti-tank detachments, rocket artillery, and more (each of which can be adapted to any Planetary Operations game or setting);

*Special rules specific to both NATO and Warsaw Pact armies to better capture the feel of commanding these forces;

*Force lists and Data Cards for operating the armies of the United States, West Germany, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Greece, Turkey, Denmark, Soviet Union, East Germany, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary on your tabletop battlefields;

*Five scenarios and one campaign game highlighting the action of World War Three from Denmark to the Dardanelles;

*Additional units and force organizations that allow players to alter the time or location of the war with more modern equipment and formations not highlighted in the scenarios.

History awaits your decision...

Note: this is not a complete game. You must own a copy of the Strike Legion: Planetary Operations rulebook to utilize the materials contained herein.

Where can I get more specifics on what is actually in here? A map? What is the area for the campaign? (NORTHAG? CENTAG? What?) what level of details in the OOB? Down to battalion level?

This is an expansion for the Strike Legion: Planetary Operations miniatures game, which is a regimental/divisional-level game. Maneuver units are battalions with multiple possible unit attachments (generally companies or platoons). Each scenario, including the campaign game, provides a unique tabletop layout for the contested sector; the campaign game is set in the V Corps AO, with the ultimate Warsaw Pact objective of holding a bridgehead west of Frankfurt.

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.
