Sink the Bismarck
Theme: WW2 Pre-Owned Punched
Very good punched copy
This is a two-player, operational-level simulation of the historic campaign to sink the Nazi battleship Bismarck in 1941.
It models all the crucial aspects of air-sea warfare during World War II, while retaining tactical ship versus ship elements. Both players manoeuvre their units on a colourful map sheet of the Atlantic.
The "fog of war" is cleverly handled through the use of "dummy" task forces and pre-plotted German movement.
Both historical and hypothetical scenarios are included.
The latter explore alternative orders of battle that might have been, such as the Scharnhorst and Gneisenau sailing to join the Bismarck.
Each hex represents 75 nautical miles, and each turn represents eight hours.
