Behind Enemy Lines

Watermarked PDF

Crack parachutists decend out of the night. Their target: the bridge vital to the sucess of a spearhead allied attack only hours away. The bridge is wired and mined for detonation and intelligence reports suggest that an SS Panzer Division is in the area. As the paratroops gather in their chutes, ready their gear, and form up their attack, they know that split-second timing and speed are their only chances for success... Elite Rangers check their weapons and grapples and eye the cliff that rises from the beach into the pre-dawn mists. Their mission: hit the German battery at the top and hit it hard, before the Allied invasion fleet comes into range. A mortar blast geysers water beside the boat and someone cracks a lame joke about the welcome mat being out. Raw guts and determination are the only hope now... A combat infantry squad peers from the cover of scattered trees and boulders along the crest of a ridge at the river below. Their problem: the last bridge over the last river between them and friendly lines lies below and the intelligence they have gathered about Panzers in the area must be returned to HQ, and fast. There is a slight complication: a Tiger I tank squatting by the road on the near bank. Only daring and inqenuity can get them back from... BEHIND ENEMY LINES Behind Enemy Lines is a role-playing game which allows you to take on the character of a U.S. Infantryman in World War II. Parachute drops, night raids, sniper ambushes, pitched battles, combat patrols, and long-range reconnaissance probes are the challanges you face. Your enemy is cunning, well-trained and well-equipped. Your ingenuity, your courage, and skill are all that stand between you and disaster.

This is right on the borderline between wargame and RPG. You could consider it a wargame with complicated figure statistics, or an RPG without much characterisation. I wouldn't expect to play it these days, since the system is rather antiquated [...]

I owned a copy of Behind Enemy Lines produced by the Companions, an offshoot of the original BEL from FASA. I really enjoyed that game, especially that the Companion's version shifted focus away from special forces onto the average dog faced GI. Back [...]

This is an opportunity to own a classic game. Yes, the system is a bit dated, and the artwork is clearly of the 80s, but the production values are very good, and it still remains one of the very few WW2 settings around.<br><br><b>QUAL [...]

I own the original game, and if the PDF contains everything that the boxed edition had, you can be sure that's gonna be one BIG file! This game will appeal most to the 50/50 RPG/Wargamer types. A die-hard roleplayer that doesn't enjoy strategy and tact [...]

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.
