Battlewagon Article #6: Battlewagon Scenario - Pacific Nights: Four Pacific Scenarios

The sixth historical scenario for Battlewagon has been released from the vaults of Nexus!

Historical Background: Between August 1942 and the end of 1943, Japanese and Allied naval forces clashed in more than a dozen nighttime surface actions. These battles were generally the result of attempts to land, supply or evacuate troops in the Solomon Islands. Although Guadalcanal is certainly the best known of these islands, other invasions in the Solomons also resulted in sea fights. Allied landings at New Georgia, Vella Lavella and Bougainville all provoked sorties from the large Japanese naval base at Rabaul.


Either actual or threatened Allied air superiority caused these battles to be fought at night. This suited the Japanese well; they had trained long and hard in night tactics, concentrating on the use of their excellent torpedoes. Although the Allies had the advantage of radar, they did not learn how to use this advantage effectively until well into 1943. Only then could the Allies outfight the Japanese in night actions.


Published at the end of 1985, this scenario requires the second edition of Battlewagon.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
