Campaign New Guinea
The New Guinea campaign spanned several years and thousands of miles; to even attempt to summarise such a huge campaign into a book of this size is to accept that it cannot do justice to those who fought in it. Many critical battles have not been presented as scenarios in this book, merely due to the constraints of the book size and the author’s wish to present a variety of very different scenarios for players. For those who are interested in a more in-depth look at the actual historical events surrounding the New Guinea campaign, a bibliography is provided to aid you in your research

Delivery During COVID-19 Lockdown
Our webstore remains operational for deliveries and click-and-collect. Orders will be fulfilled on a less frequent basis due to the store's limited opening times and also to minimise non-essential journeys. We are currently dispatching orders twice per week, on a Monday and Thursday morning.
This means that orders placed up until 16:00 on a Saturday will be marked as dispatched on the Saturday and then posted/collected on Monday morning, and orders placed from Saturday evening to Wednesday 16:00 will be marked as dispatched on Wednesday and posted/collected on Thursday morning.
Click-and-collect orders will be ready for collection a minimum of 20 minutes after they have been placed, and only on days which the store is otherwise open (presently Wednesday and Saturday)
If your order does not arrive after 30 days have passed from when we told you it was dispatched, please contact us and we will investigate.
Once we have investigated the circumstances surrounding the missing order, we will usually offer you one of the following two solutions;
1) If we have the item(s) in stock, we will offer to send the item again
