Bolt Action: Campaign - New Guinea


1 In Stock

The New Guinea campaign spanned several years and thousands of miles; to even attempt to summarise such a huge campaign into a book of this size is to accept that it cannot do justice to those who fought in it. Many critical battles have not been presented as scenarios in this book; merely due to the constraints of the book size and the author’s wish to present a variety of very different scenarios for players. For those who are interested in a more in-depth look at the actual historical events surrounding the New Guinea campaign; a bibliography is provided to aid you in your research

132 pages of stunning photography and full-colour art this campaign supplement includes:
