Amazing game, indeed very deep mechanics designed to fit more narrative and abstract forms of play then something heavily reliant on tactical maps, like the original (black cover) edition of this system. Huge variety of rules for contemporary warfare, with focus on Vietnam as prime example. That said, as much as I enjoy this product it comes as a huge disappointment! Yet another purchased and confirmed PDF that is secured and has NO BOOKMARKS! That wouldn't be an issue, since I can add bookmarks with say, Foxit Reader to any normal pdf... oh, but not a secured one! It's 220+ pages filled with tables, rules, specialist rules, exceptions, etc. And oh boy! You can't add a single bookmark! Why are people doing this to their buying customers? You literally have to donwload the pirate version to add essential links and bookmarks to this pdf, although you have purchased the game! It's like the DRM nonsense that only serves to irk the actual paying customer. ffs...

Much as I wanted to enjoy this title from my younger days, I found myself unhappy with page 99 of the PDF file. the map is upside down. Using a Kindle to read this means that the map will ALWAYS be upside down due to the mercury switch in the Kindle. Can this be fixed? I've only found one page like this thus far, but there may be more...

Scanned image
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.
