Mark, it's been 5 years and I'm looking for the 96-page updated book. Has it been released and I just missed it? The Front is a wonderful game and have been looking forward to the new book. Thanks!

If players and GMs want to get more indepth in the game:
Rations: If players want to make certain things a little realistic concerning rations (for example); British rations (Commonwealth):
1 Pack of oatmeal, pocket tin opener, 1 pack of 5 boiled sweets (individually wrapped),
2 small blocks of soup, 1 pack of matches, 1 cube of vitamin enriched chocolate, napkin,
2 packets of gum (4 bits in each pack), 2 small boxes of tea for 12 ounce mug (contains milk & sugar), 1 small pack of sugar (6 cubes), 1 pack of biscuits/crackers (5-pack), tinned ham, 2 desert biscuits.

This was in ONE box. The US rations were THREE boxes (breakfast, dinner, supper); their 3 squares a day.
Searching Youtube should give players & GMs a better idea of this particular item.
So far, this is the only place to put such ideas for The Front & players, etc. I'll be making a list of equipment later.

There is a G+ page and such for THE FRONT. Also a more detailed hard bound book is on its way.

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.
