Bloody Burma

(1 customer review)

£6.50

Bloody Burma contains an extensive history of the Japanese invasion of Burma in 1941/2, accompanied by twenty-four unique, company-level scenarios designed for I Ain’t Been Shot, Mum! but easily adaptable to other systems. It includes attacks, counter-attacks, encounter battles, fighting retreats, ambushes, and even an attempt to rescue POW’s!

Bloody Burma begins gently with a couple of infantry-only actions in the jungles of southern Burma, but rapidly progresses to full scale combined arms warfare (infantry, tanks, artillery and aircraft) on the plains and in the dense woods around Rangoon. Finally, the action moves to the high ground and river valleys to the north of Burma , as British, Indian and Chinese troops desperately try and hold off the rampaging Japanese for long enough to make their getaway!

Each scenario contains a background history, maps, a full game briefing, and a full briefing for each player. Simply print out the pages you need, unpack your figures, set up the table, and away you go! There’s plenty of information given with each scenario, allowing easy conversion to other systems.

Bloody Burma contains the following scenarios: Operation Yacht; Kawkareik; Moulmein ; Paung; Kuzeik; Danyingon; The Yinon Road; Bilin; Pagoda Hill; Mokpalin; Payagyi; Pegu; Taukkyan; Pyuntaza; Henzada; Kyungon; Shwedaung; Kokkogwa; Myingun; Yenangyaung; Htuchaung; Kyaukse; Monywa; and Shwegyin.

    This is a really solid effort with comprehensive information and – joy of joys – a bibliography for further reading.
    One very useful feature not mentioned in the product description is a chart showing you exactly how many models of which type you need for each scenario: this really saved my bacon when I was trying to work out how many Japanese grenade launchers / knee mortars I needed before putting in an order during the Fighting 15s clearance sale of Eureka Miniatures & AB Figures!
    There are only three scenarios with Chinese: Kyungon 23rd March 1942; Yenangyaung and Htuchaung both 19th April 1942.
    I wish Robert Avery would do a sequel covering the later war in Burma from 1943 to 1945 including the famous battles at Imphal and Kohima in 1944.
    The ‘fictionalised’ Imphal scenario Robert Avery did for the Summer 2005 Special was disappointing. The only ‘fictionalisation’ I’ve found in this 24 scenario booklet regards the details of the street plan of Rangoon in 1942, which is fair enough! I think I’d have trouble researching the 1942 street plan of my home town, never mind Rangoon!
