Field of Battle: WW2 covers the World War 2 era from 1939 through 1945.
Field of Battle: WW2 is a stand alone game - no additional supplements
are necessary for play. Field of Battle: WW2 includes ratings and
organizational charts for the British, French, German, Polish, Italian,
Japanese, Soviet, and United States armies.
Field of Battle: WW2 is designed to give players the feel for
commanding battalions, regiments, divisions, and more in a miniature
WW2 environment. Games with a division per side can easily be resolved
in 2 to 4 hours. Field of Battle: WW2 is designed using game processes
used in the popular Field of Battle rules that gives all players an
equal opportunity to act during the game.
Field of Battle: WW2 is not a game of skirmishes or low level
actions, but rather one of battles of up to Division size or larger.
Field of Battle: WW2 uses companies as the combat element, and battalions as the maneuver element.
The only troops represented as units on the tabletop are
maneuver and combat elements - infantry companies, armor companies, and
anti-tank gun/artillery companies. There are no Heavy Weapon companies
– no separate machine gun or mortar units. The effects of supporting
machine gun and mortar companies are abstracted in the game mechanics
and card system.
