World War 2 Simulations
Strategy and table top war games can simulate any battles in man’s history or future. The most important event that took place in the last 100 years is World War 2. This cataclysmic event transformed our world in massive ways. There have been numerous attempts to try to simulate the grand strategy used by Winston Churchill, Franklin Roosevelt and Joseph Stalin
In their war against Adolf Hitler.
These Grand Strategy games can be fun to play and make you think about history. Some great examples of these games would be Axis and Allies and A World at war. To bring the war to life on a personal level there are tactical simulations. The premier simulation and perhaps the best tactical game ever created is Advanced Squad Leader. Whether you want to drive a King Tiger tank on the Eastern Front, Assault the Beaches of Normandy, fight in the south Pacific or the frozen wastes of Stalingrad, this game brings it to life on a level of detail that puts computer games to shame.
The artwork on the counters is beautifully done and useful. The Scenarios immerse the player in the battle giving him the ability to make the same decisions as the sergeants, lieutenants and privates he just read about. Given the time and patience the Advanced Squad leader player will be immersed in this conflict to a level not seen before. They will also be part of a history loving community.
