The Korean War Series Project!

Yes with all four Korean War products there will be 200 scenarios.

Most of the Korean war is over looked and many famous battles were fought there.

The Chinese like to fight in close with numbers and submachine guns!

It seems funny that the Korean War can be forgotten:

The United Nations Command (UNC) suffered over 500,000 casualties including 94,000 dead. The Communist forces suffered an estimated 1,500,000 casualties. The United States losses were 33,629 dead, 103,284 wounded and 5,178 missing or captured.

It's an odd part of our history. When I was stationed there in the 70s, people back home in Indiana didn't even know we still had troops there. When I've mentioned the casualties we have sustained in the years since the action, people are surprised. Our media seems to ignore it for the most part except for the occasional north saber rattling.

Yeah Thomas very true! Good thing we have PG to bring it to light, and to the gamers. Smile

Oh I see: Chinese = assaults and lots of them! Harrowing stuff.

I don't know why East Asia basically doesn't exist as far as a lot of people are concerned. On the other hand, I've always been interested in the subject. It was isolated from the west but paralleled it in a lot of ways.

And that is only some of it! More to come later.

A large part of it was war weariness and a desire to focus on the "happy days" of the 1950's. Had it lasted longer, like the next war, I suspect public awareness would have risen.

That's because you silly Westerners insist on calling it by the wrong name. Its proper cognomen is:

The War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid North Korea


There's a splendid museum in Dandong, Liaoning right on the border with NK that will unwash your brain and reveal the real truth of the war. Big Grin


Link one, Link two

Order Counter-Attack, heads up!

Korean War: Pusan Perimeter has been sold out a while now but it sounds like components for it are coming in shortly so it will be back in print, which is good news!

Now I recommend that you guys who haven't pre-ordered Korean War: Counter-Attack, the second game in the series get your orders in, as I believe this one will sellout like Pusan did and if so, a reprint might take another year, like Pusan did. Just a heads up if you want the game.

Intervention will be the 3rd game in the series and Allies the 4th one.
