Dedication: WAR AGAINST RUSSIA is dedicated as a token
of remembrance and respect to the Polish, Russian, Jewish and other
Eastern European peoples who suffered, endured, and contributed so much
to Allied Victory over Nazi Germany and its Axis partners.
WAR AGAINST RUSSIA is COPYRIGHTED--NOT Public Domain--and FREE
under the following conditions:
Schools, libraries, and museums are free to make and keep copies for in-house educational use or nonpermanent loan/circulation ... in gratitude for the fine education and research assistance I have always received from such institutions.
An individual is free to make one personal copy of WAR AGAINST RUSSIA for his/her own personal use.
All other rights--including publishing rights--are reserved to me.
A Request: If you do assemble and play this free game of mine, PLEASE let me know at ELCOAT@hotmail.com what you think of it and whether, after more than a couple games, you think one side or the other has an advantage. Thanks!
And now: Here are WAR's components, to print off and assemble so that it may be played. Players-students will also need a single six-sided die (or chits numbered 1-6, to be drawn out of a hat) for the randomized combat results tables.
- Air Combat Combat Results Table (rev. 6Jan12)
- Game-Turn Sequence, Calendar, Replacements, etc. (rev. 6Jan12)
- Combat Results Table, Terrain Effects, etc. (rev. 6Jan12)
- German and Allied Axis Units
- Russian Units 23. Army should be 42. Army.
You will want to print the units off at maximum size possible and
then photo-reduce them from that, for best detail/quality.
1/2"--13mm--wide is about right. Russian units should be printed/photocopied
off onto pink or tan paper or cardstock. Axis units should be
printed/photocopied off onto blue or gray paper/cardstock.
The numerical factors on the units are: attack-defense-(initial )movement.
SUGGESTION: For the (units, map, symbols) .gif files, I suggest bringing them
up on-screen on L-View or some similar viewer software and *then* printing them off.
When I try to print them directly off the Web, I only get a partial printing, for some reason.
- 2 map segments: Are located at my other webpage, http://www.coatneyhistory.com (They exceeded my webpage space here.)
You will want to print these off as large as possible, and you should enlarge them with a photocopier after that, so that the mapboard comes out to a width of about 20"/50.8cms. Ivory is an excellent map color.
- Now would you like to go to my home page to see photos of a 1ST ALAMEIN
historical scene and the cardstock MODEL SHIPS I design? And I have designed other games as well.
If you are a friend, and/or if you would like to share info and ideas about military and naval history and game designing and cardstock model shipbuilding, and/or you have any questions about WAR AGAINST feel free to e-mail me at ELCOAT@Hotmail.com.
Thanks for your interest in WAR AGAINST RUSSIA....:-)
