Re: China Sino-Japanese war, 1930’s

This is an excellent selection of essays by historians from US and China, with much recent scholarship. It goes from big picture discussion right down to morale of particular divisions. https://www.bookdepository.com/Battle-for-China-Mark-R-Peattie/9780804792073?ref=grid-view&qid=1589888523685&sr=1...

Re: Pacific Theater Reading List help

Foxhound 61,

Outstanding! I know very little about the Kokoda Track fighting and this will really help. The more I read on the Pacific Campaigns the more I realize I don’t know.

Thanks!

Re: Pacific Theater Reading List help

Thanks!! And headed to Amazon now...

Good find with “Behind The Myth Of The Jungle Superman: A Tactical Examination Of The Japanese Army’s Centrifugal Offensive, 7 December 1941 To 20 May 1942”! I hadn’t thought to go look through the CGSC papers online, but there is some great stuff in there.

Re: Pacific Theater Reading List help

TT,

Thanks! I’m painting Commonwealth troops for 1941-42 right now so that fits right in with my current focus.

Thanks!

Pacific Theater Reading List help

Folks,   In preparation for the upcoming Pacific handbook I've been doing a bunch of reading on that theater to try to get myself up to speed. I'm primarily an ETO gamer, so this is a new world and there is a LOT of material to explore here! I'm reasonably well versed in some areas, like the Soviet-...

Re: Saipan PSC

TT - Trained by US, but had a strange mix of British & US gear and a unique TO&E including 2 60mm Mortars in each platoon. 3 x 12 man squads with a Bren each plus a weapons squad with the 60mm Mortars

Re: Saipan PSC

TT - I think some Chinese may make it into the Far East Handbook, although I think you are right about the Mongolian stuff. I just wish someone made figures for X-Force Chinese Forces in India!

However, building an opponent for something you already have helps Built Japanese after I already had Soviets with a fair bit of EW kit so had an existing opponent force in hand. Now building tropical Brits to fight either Japanese or the shedload of FJ ...

Re: Saipan PSC

Outstanding! US Army in the Pacific are very underrepresented in wargames, so Id be very happy to see that. Plus what happened on Saipan is still contentious so understanding the situation facing 27 ID a little better would be great.

Thanks!
