(NEW) 2014 Annual - Set Europe Ablaze

(NEW) 2014 Annual - Set Europe Ablaze

“Special Operations Executive were amateur, dangerous and bogus.”

-- Head of the SIS, Sir Stewart Menzies

There were turf wars from the start. The SIS did not want SOE disrupting their agents' intelligence-gathering operations by blowing up bridges and factories. Other powerful groups, like Bomber Command, also despised SOE and resented loaning them aircraft for 'unethical' clandestine missions. (Their plan to win the war called for bombing Germany to its knees.) But with Churchill as their guardian angel the SOE survived and fought on for victory....

2013 Annual - La Bataille de Vauchamps

2013 Annual - La Bataille de Vauchamps

“Come. We must repeat the campaign in Italy.”

-- Emperor Napoleon to Berthier, 1814

For the casual reader who looks into the “100 Days” and the Waterloo Campaign, one of the early questions is, “Who (the heck) is Grouchy?” Followed up by wondering why (on earth) Napoleon would give this guy a third of his army and depend on him to keep Blücher’s Prussians far from Wellington....

2012 Annual - Forlorn Hopes

2012 Annual - Forlorn Hopes

“The fruits of victory are tumbling into our mouths too quickly.”

-- Emperor Hirohito

Most Americans can easily name Pearl Harbor as the most successful Japanese attack of the war. But what campaign truly represents the "high tide" of the Japanese Empire?....

2011 Annual - Beyond Waterloo

2011 Annual - Beyond Waterloo

"Damn the fellow, he is a mere pounder after all!"

-- Wellington's assessment of Napoleon

Most “Waterloo games” lock players into the circumstances of that famous battle, or if they give some small leeway, they still all suffer from a similar narrow focus. You will have the Armée du Nord face some combination of Blucher and Wellington and everyone just does the best they can. But any reading of the period shows a flurry of activity—key, historical events—which no one has bothered putting into game form. Until now...

2010 Annual - Four Roads To Moscow

2010 Annual - Four Roads To Moscow

“When Barbarossa begins, the world will hold its breath!”

-- Adolf Hitler

Why did Barbarossa fail? Now, four veteran designers combine in a unique offering from Against the Odds. The ATO Annual edition for 2010 includes four different games, but all on the same topic, Operation Barbarossa. Each designer looks hard at the reasons behind Barbarossa's successes and failures.

2009 Annual - Verdun: A Generation Lost

2009 Annual - Verdun: A Generation Lost

“They shall not pass!” -- Marshal Petain

Hoping to bring a decisive conclusion along the Western Front in 1916 despite the mud-and misery-filled trench deadlock, German General von Falkenhayn launched an attack from which the French could not retreat, and would prove costly for them to defend. The goal of the German offensive was the historic and symbolic city of Verdun.

2008 Annual - Operation Cartwheel

2008 Annual - Operation Cartwheel

“You are remembered for the rules you break.”

-- Douglas MacArthur

Deciding which battle in the Pacific War is the bloodiest all depends on what numbers are being counted. Convincing arguments can be made for Tarawa, Iwo, Okinawa, and Peleliu, and possibly others. One island’s name is not on the list. But it could have been...

2007 Annual - Look Away! The Fall of Atlanta

2007 Annual - Look Away! The Fall of Atlanta

"We will remove and destroy every obstacle - if need be, take every life, every acre of land, every particle of property, everything that to us seems proper."

-- William T. Sherman

At the climax of the American Civil War the armies of the Confederacy were pressed back into their heartland as the rebellion tried desperately to sustain itself against Union forces. One of the most important campaigns occurred in southeastern Tennessee and Georgia, as Federal armies pressed toward the Confederacy's vital city of Atlanta...
