Howdy all, Just an update on the NUTS Campaign books project, which will come out in the Fall.
1. NUTS Western Front - done 2. NUTS Eastern Front - done 3. NUTS Desert War - done 4. NUTS War Against Japan (PTO) - in draft.
The PTO book is taking a lot of research on my part since I wasn't as familiar with it as I was the others. The PTO is really almost 2-3 different wars. The USMC Island Hopping campaigns that most US wargamers are familiar with is only one aspect -- there's also the heroic Australian and American efforts in the PNG campaigns, and the Burma campaign which raged the duration of the war and involved on the Allied side - British & Commonwealth (Indian, Gurkha, West African), Burmese Army, Chinese Expeditionary Force, US Army (Merril's Marauders, the Flying Tigers and the 5334th Composite Unit); and on the Japanese side the Japanese Army, elements of the Thai Army, Burmese nationalists and the Indian National Army (anti-British Indian Nationalists).
Three very different experiences, so I'm grinding my way through this book. But it's going to be a fantastic release when done! Thanks again to those who helped proof the first three books, PM me here if you'd like to help proof the PTO book, especially if you're informed about the PTO. Thanks!
