The Battle for the Falklands is a game of modern naval and air warfare covering the conflict between Britain and Argentina over the Falkland Islands in 1982.

In this two player game players must act quickly to achieve their goals and secure military control over the desolate Falkland Islands. As Argentina you must act quickly to size the islands and use your limited fleet to fortify the Falklands before the British navy can arrive in force to force your navy back into port.

As Britain you must mobolize the British navy quickly to prevent Argenina from fortifying the Falklands with an occupation force too large to contend with. If you can accomplish that, the British navy must brave the Exocet missles from the Argentinian airforce and secure the waterways around the Falklands in preparation for a landing assault to ratake the island.

Both players must manage diplomatic relations with the United States and other nations to influence the fate of world trade and Argentina's ability to purchase additional Exocet missles to utilize against the superior British navy.

Original electronic
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.
