World at War: Chinese Army Compendium


The Chinese Army Compendium is your comprehensive guide to using Chinese armies in Battlefield Evolution: World at War. The Chinese role and importance in World War II is often overlooked or misjudged by western wargamers and even historians. For China World War II has a rather different meaning then that in the rest of the world.
Interestingly enough in China, no one talks about the Second World War; instead people talk about the Anti-Japanese War. This book covers the Chinese armed forces of the War against the Imperial Japanese Army from 1937 to 1945; be it Kuomintang forces (Chinese National Revolutionary Party) or Mao Tse-tung's People Liberation Army.
Included are the following army lists:

1937 - 1938 Nanking National Revolutionary Army
1937 - 1941 Soviet Advised National Revolutionary Army
1942 - 1943 National Revolutionary Army
1944 - 1945 Late War Chinese US equipped X and Y-Forces
1937 - 1945 Chinese Red Army Guerrilla Forces

The book also provides new Traits, Modified Advanced Rules and options to use captured equipment to add to your games of World at War. Stats for the following vehicle and air units are also included:

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.
