Operational Combat Series (OCS) #9
The Korean War stands as a key event in world history. It is well-deserving of further study. The first shooting confrontation of the Cold War, and the first limited war of the nuclear age, it is the only time since the Second World War that two of the world's major military powers fought one another - in this case the United States and China.
Diplomatically, the war offers an interesting view of the miscalculation and ineptitude on both sides that led to open conflict. It also brings to light the United Nations' first opportunity to play a leading role in world military events.
Korea: The Forgotten War covers the first year of the war and highlights the mobile phases of the battle. Campaign victory is determined most often by the stable positions of the lines (relative to the "neck" of the peninsula). A number of shorter scenarios are also included to allow players to explore specific operations or to use as a training scenario before taking on one of the campaign games.
Options include variants on the Red Chinese entry into the war, nuclear weapons, and full Soviet support in addition to a number of more minor variations.
13 scenarios in which 2 use only 2 maps and 5 use only one map.
This is a reprint of the 2003 game. Some corrections have been made, including some to make this version compatible with the latest version of the OCS rules.
