The Asian Way of War Pack

Three ziplock ATO back issues for a great price!

Westerners have generally overlooked big events in the East-- unless someone like Genghis Khan or Tamerlane brings it to them. The only "Eastern" battle in the the Mitchell/Creasy "20 Decisive Battles that Changed the World" is Midway.

But there have been many significant wars and battles on the far side of Russia. Now, the Asian Way of War looks at three of the most intense, fought entirely between Asians.

The Musket’s Way of War

Three ziplock ATO back issues for a great price!

From the earliest battles, "ranged weapons" (like slings, spear throwers, bows) have been an important part of an army's structure... but melee/shock weapons were still where battles were usually won or lost.

That is, until the musket became an ever-larger part of armies all over the world....

"The Musket's Way of War" crosses three centuries to show the evolving nature of warfare and the emergence of the musket-armed infantryman as "Queen of Battle."

All for one low price...that includes shipping!

The Naval Way of War Pack

Three ziplock ATO back issues for a great price!

The Naval Way of War gives you a remarkable spread of important but little- known battles and campaigns.

Like the most intense convoy action of the Second World War... a naval action that determined just how much aid might reach the Soviet Union for the rest of the war. All sides agree the battle was an Arctic Disaster for the Allies.

Or the little known “Seven Weeks War” of 1866, fought between Austria-Hungary and the forming nation of Italy. A remarkable naval action where an admiral, outnumbered two-to-one, had the temerity to order, There Must Be a Victory (and pull it off).

Or the opening campaign between Hitler and the just-entered-the-war U.S., where a handful of U-boats did more damage than what happened at Pearl Harbor, a unending “drumroll” (Paukenschlag) of sinking ships and high casualties.

It’s The Naval Way of War, from ATO Magazine. Three great issues at one low price.

The New World's Way of War Pack

Three ziplock ATO back issues for a great price!

It all kept coming back to one question--would the "Old World" rule the new one?

All the kings certainly wanted to. They wanted the cheap natural resources and the captive markets. But the people in those "markets" wanted to govern themselves.

And so history records one revolution after another, as each place declared the right to local rule.

And winning, despite long odds that said maybe they were foolish to begin. In the end, it would be the kings who looked foolish, over and over again.

Get all three games above for one low price, and see how much "revoltin' fun" you can have.

The Classical Way of War Pack

Three ziplock ATO back issues for a great price!

Unlike today's push button world, there was a time (well actually for most of recorded history) when men fought hand to hand, completely aware of who they were killing and being slain by in return. A time when the sights and sounds and even the smell of battle could send men into a battlefield frenzy or send a visible shudder of fear through the ranks.

Welcome to the Classic Way of War, three fast paced games that test the very nature of man

Now, here is your chance to pick up great titles at a bargain price - indeed, back then they called it "plunder!"

The Way of War in '44 Pack

Three ziplock ATO back issues for a great price!

If World War II could be described like the movements of a symphony, surely the year 1944 represents the last grand crescendo... the enormous battles with massive results.

Here is your chance to either end this war against Facism early with a shattering blow, or stubbornly resist defeat and buy time until the Fatherland can bring its rumored "wonder weapons" to bear.

Welcome to the Way of War in '44, with three totally different battles across three different seasons, all taking place in 1944.

The German Way of War Pack

Three ziplock ATO back issues for a great price!

If the Germans have added just one word to the world's military vocabulary, that word is surely "Angriff!" ("Attack"). Yet the Germans have also been some of the world's toughest defenders as well, selling their lives dearly, or giving ground grudgingly - and then only so as to prepare a shattering counterattack.

Welcome to the German Way of War, an exciting mix of dogged resistance and the turning of tables on hated foes!

Now, here is your chance to pick up quality award-winning titles at a bargain price - but that's simply a part of "The German Code of Honor."

The American Way of War Pack

Three ziplock ATO back issues for a great price!

Throughout most of its history, America has gone to war with enthusiasm and expectations of a quick victory. It has not always worked that way. In the end, massive resources have -- usually -- tipped the balance toward America's goals...but even that has sometimes had mixed results. (See "War with Spain -- Philippine Insurrection.")

Welcome to the American Way of War, an historical mixture of misplaced efforts, and massive resources to redeem them.

Now, here is your chance to pick up award-winning titles at a bargain price - but that's "The American Way of doing business."
