Product Description

Theme:      WW2      Discounted     

Unpunched good copy but staples rusty.

On the morning of August 7, 1942, the U.S. Marines landed on the beaches of Guadalcanal, marking the first American offensive against Japan in the Pacific in World War II. The bitter and protracted struggle that followed involved major elements of the navies and air forces of both sides.

Guadalcanal was the operation that started the Allies on the road to Tokyo. From here the U.S. Marines would later launch the invasions of the Palau Islands, Bougainville and Guam. Operation Shoestring is a company-level game focusing on that dramatic first conflict.
