Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An overview of the nature & unique challenges of Special Ops, including 20 scenarios & example unit organizations.

    A hugely versatile volume, Classified: Special Operations can be used to model Special Operations missions ranging from WWII Commando actions, through Special Forces missions in Vietnam, to SAS and Delta missions pulled directly from today's headlines.

    Recent events in the Middle East have brought the necessity for and operations by Special Operations units into sharp focus, making this a highly topical work.

    Includes photos taken by troops on the ground.

    Classified: Special Operations conforms to the normal Force on Force rules, but zooms in on Special Operations tactics and missions in particular, opening up a whole new theater of desperate action and edge of the seat gaming to Force on Force gamers, regardless of their specific period of interest.

Synopsis:

From the US interventions in Grenada, Panama and Colombia, to domestic operations against cartels and revolutionary groups in Peru, Guatemala, Venezuela and Brazil, Contra!, the latest companion volume for Force on Force, allows wargamers to recreate any and all of them. With detailed background information, extensive orders of battle for the principal forces in the region, and a range of scenarios, Contra! gives Force on Force players a detailed and realistic experience of modern combat in the jungles, hills, cities and favelas of South and Central America.
